Turns out, this is what was in the box from EKU. Sweet.
My students did some more conspiring for my OGR present, and ordered me a dagger from Darkwood Armory. It's a thing of beauty -short but deadly. I'm pretty sure I've never seen it's like.
This is the side view, showing the design of the shell and ring guard...patterned on purpose after the dagger carried by Master Dylan. Even so, the piece is still individual unto itself - the likeness to Dylan's is in overall layout only, as they were made by very different smiths.
Check this out! The shell is engraved with my arms, so you know who's killing you. A truly fine gift.
