A Comet Custom Knife

Knifemaker* :
Stephen Olszewski
Description* :
”The Comet” was a superlative Art Deco sculpture by
Maurice Giraud-Rivire made in 1927. It was inspired by the appearance of Halley’s Comet, which has appeared close to earth for several thousand years. Google “The Comet” sculpture if interested. The original sculpture is one of the most coveted Art Deco sculptures of the Deco period and in that few were made, they sell in the high five figures. An original is available here: http://www.modernism.com/prod_gen.cfm?load=1017&srow1=30
Ron Skaggs did the carving of the blade and handle. Gold was 1/6 or the price that it is today and Ron loaded this knife with a fully sculpted figure of the flying woman. There is so much solid gold that was used to carve the woman’s body, that upon picking the knife up, one wonders where all the weight comes from. This is a 7 ounce knife and huge amount of the weight is from the gold. There has never been a finer authentic Art Deco knife.
