The large 17 inch dagger was carved from wax maple and colored with tobacco stain and polished.
The smaller dagger has a nice grain walnut blade and a dyed maple handle.
Found some great top grain cowhide for the holsters. Rubbing briskly while damp takes on an imprint of the blades inside.

I really dig your style. And as a sword collector (in the past tense anyway, had to sell ‘em), I certainly understand the obsession with blades.
