Autem (ritual dagger)

Hi everyone!
Few months ago I made a ritual dagger for the tattoo master.
In addition to the usual knife functions its can serve as a talisman to its owner.

It was funny to understand that the dagger always was like a talisman for a man. It could defend you on the battlefield, protect the honor of a woman walking at night through the gloomy streets of London somewhere in 1650s and restore justice in gambling conflict.

Powerful symbols: eye\ triangle\ spiral are made to balance the destructive essence of the dagger.
The triangle symbolizes the unity of Heaven-Man-Earth
The eye is a symbol of mind and spirit
Spiral-a single code of all things
Hand forged M2 steel, blackwood, mokume
