Roman Puggio, companion piece to Gladius Hispaniensis.

Details

This is something that Julius Caesar became intimately familiar with. The Puggio was the Roman dagger, slightly shorter and more handy than the Gladius. While the latter was worn on a baldric on the right side, the Puggio hung by loops on the belt at the left.
The blade is hand-forged and hollow-ground from O-1 steel and mounted on a bone and walnut grip. The scabbard is leather lined wood, wrapped in rawhide. I consider this the partner piece to my Gladius Hispaniensis, though I will sell them separately. Purchased as a set, I will only charge $1400.
Cat is not included.

Materials Used

O-1 steel, bone, walnut, Baltic birch, rawhide and brass.

Policies

I guarantee all of my knives under normal conditions. Any kind of abuse will invalidate the guarantee. That's doing things like throwing them, or using them as hatchets. It breaks my little heart to see my work destroyed like that!
After being in this field for all these years, I fear I've become somewhat suspicious after being ripped off a few times. Therefore, I have to set some ground rules.
1. Communicate ONLY through ArtFire. A temporary Yahoo email address gets my hackles up and Spidey senses tingling.
2. You may not realise it, but there's an astonishing amount of work involved in all of my creations. The prices I list are more than fair. Please don't insult me by trying to haggle or offering a trade.
3. Payment is either by PayPal, if I need to ship something, or cash if you're in the area and would just like to pick it up. That'll even give you local folks a chance to look at things and play with them! I won't accept money orders, vague promises of payment later or third-party checks.
4. While we're on that subject: don't tell me you absolutely MUST HAVE something, but you're in the process of moving and can't come by, personally, or wait for delivery. (One person even claimed she was on a scientific expedition at the South Pole. A+ for originality!) I'm not going to give a $500 knife to your agent/mover/lab assistant in exchange for a money order or cashier's check.

What it comes down to is mutual respect. I will go the extra mile for any of my customers. I hope my customers realise that I am an artist and a craftsman with above-average skills. My work speaks for itself.
