Unicorn Dagger
Inspired by the famous Unicorn Sword of Charles the Bold (15th century), this companion dagger contains the design elements of the original. Even the construction follows closely that of the famous sword. The carved and relief engraved metal fittings for the handle and scabbard are heavy 24k yellow gold plated and the Narwhal ivory are all faithful to the original sword. Narwhal ivory was sold for hundreds of years by the Vikings to Europeans, as the spiral horn of the mythical unicorn, but that is another fascinating story in Medieval history.
