    Hello Everyone.
    This is my best job at the momento. It is a full integral double guard W pattern damascus dagger.
    I made this piece for the MAC2019 (is like the blade show in Buenos Aires) and made me win the prize to "knifemaker revelation 2019".
    It was the first time that i make a dagger, the first time that i make fullers, first time i make a doble integral guard, first time i make domed pins, fist time i make a sheath with a damascus lock or hook... I think, the final result is more than acceptable except for some details to improve.
    The design of the dagger wasn't planed, it came up in the forging process, so maybe there are some things I would have liked to do different.
