Could anyone give me a little HELP in identifying this knife!

I have had a request to design a knife display stand for a young lady who has been unable to purchase one because of this knife's 'very' unique configuration (at least I have never seen this configuration).

Can anybody give me any information on this type of knife? Style name, possible origin & etc.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.

Regards

Sergi,

I don't know.  Without a brand on the blade, finding the name of the knife seems hopeless -- not that it was likely to have anything other than something suggestive (like "Dragon Slayer Knife") or descriptive (like "Dragon Double Dagger Fantasy Knife").  While it was clearly meant for import to the U.S. (with the imprint of "Stainless China") on one side of the blade, tracking down the specific manufacturer might prove effectively impossible.

I tried to do some Google images research on your behalf, & I gotta say, my head is spinning from all the various fantasy knives with dragons out there.  I used terms like "vintage fantasy dragon double dagger".  Generically, I'd just use the term "fantasy knife".  

At this point, I'd just say to use your imagination!  Good luck, & I'd love to see what you come up with (but, no pressure)!

Thanks for the response DLKG.

I queried the owner and she indicated she bought the knife at a renaissance fair in Atlanta, GA. 15 years ago from a vendor or exhibitor called 'Kingdom of Arms' foundry.
I had never heard of this company (but then again I have been very limited in actual knife 'making' itself). I Googled and found their website. The company/foundry appears to be in Jackson, TN.
Their web site indicates 'handmade by artisans in their foundry', but who knows 15 years ago!
I will contact them and see if they have any records, but I doubt it after 15 years.
Thanks again.
If I find out the 'style' name I'll let you know.

Hey Sergi - Here is what I found...I believe this is your knife - or one like it anyway.

Here is the link to it:

http://anoldmansstuff-ca.3dcartstores.com/Chinese-Double-Bladed-Han...

This is in an on-line antique shop going for $89.99 CAD. This shop states it is a "authentic replica of Chinese fighting knife". Authentic replica...is that like virgin vinyl? I wonder what makes a replica Authentic over your everyday replica? I'm sorry - that's for another discussion. 

Of particular note is the display stand featured with this knife....it's appears to be a standard display with blade chock  and handle mount, but sized to account for the center handle spike. There are more photos at the site.

Now amazing as it is that I found this while you and DLKG did not, I have to confess I discovered the secret MoJo while looking for a knife hidden by our own DLKG. So here is the secret - you have to think like DLKG. I know - simple right? Apparently this works for everyone except DLKG, because he is the DLKG. I dunno - I think it has something to with the universal laws of physics, the Black Hole, and that you can't be in two places at once or something. All I know is that for the second time in a row, I chanted these words using a Minnesotan accent: "Oh geez...if I lived in Minnesota don't you know, and had a boatload of Kershaw's...what would I search for on the internet to help Sergi out?" Ta da! it worked!

OK - while I am having a little fun at DLKG's expense - I did build off his searching technique and added the words "vintage Chinese double blade dragon knife". But I typed it with a Minnesotan accent!  :-)

Anyway - I am not able to narrow down the manufacturer or Importer either....but at least as a team we discovered another one exists. I hope this helps. I'm looking forward to seeing what you might design for a display. 

DLKG - you're a great sport - thank you as always for playing! Chodzi o ciebie bracie!
