RAPTOR EAGLE TALON GIBEON METEORITE DAGGER. Here is one for the discerning knife/meteorite collector!!! It is a HUGE custom made one of a kind. Overall in length and the blade is.
Thick and is made from. Grams of museum quality Gibeon meteorite.Widmanstätten pattern on this blade is very crisp and distinct. Guard and eagle end cap are cast from. 999 Fine silver on my custom knives rather than Sterling. The handle is presentation grade Thuya burl from Morocco. The beautiful Thuya Burl handle is topped with an eagle head with lathe turned copper eyes.
This one is a SIGNED piece with my shop stamp on the guard. The blade has several small troilite inclusions. Troilite appears as a dark spot among a meteorite's angular metal patterns. Geologically speaking, it is a rare mineral that is a variety of pyrrhotite.
It is widely but sparsely distributed in meteorites, and in lunar soil samples. Iron-containing Octahedrite meteorites such as Gibeon meteorite have these inclusions. There will never be another one like this one so don't hesitate and let it get away from you!!! Material is obtained from Marvin and Kitty Kilgore at SOUTHWEST METEORITE LAB right here in Payson, AZ.
