Unique and handsomely rugged, the addition of this amazing red and black obsidian blade knife will enhance the natural beauty and ambiance of your home or office. Intriguing, bold, black and red obsidian is carved and sculpted into the blade of this decorative knife. The rustic and ancient appearing handle is created from an elk antler with a custom carved and perfectly fitted wooden tip. Handmade with an obsidian blade, this knife was created by the talented Utah artist and expert flint knapper, Myron Nix.
Flint knapping, often referred to as a lost art, is a method of using stone to chip away at chunks of obsidian to handcraft arrowheads, spearheads, tomahawk blades, and other tools. Some of the finest examples of tools and weapons were created by Native Americans using the flint knapping technique.
Myron Nix creates artistic masterpieces which are one-of-a-kind. He has a reputation for attention to fine detail, his expert knapping technique, and his creative approach. Myron makes a wide variety of knives, peace pipes, tomahawks, arrows, quivers, and spears.
Obsidian is the rock formed as a result of quickly cooled lava, which is the parent material. Extrusive formation of obsidian may occur when felsic lava cools rapidly at the edges of a felsic lava flow or volcanic dome or when lava cools during sudden contact with water or air. Intrusive formation of obsidian may occur when felsic lava cools along the edges of a dike.
Obsidian is mineral-like, but is is not a true mineral because is is not crystalline and its composition is too variable to be classified as a mineral. Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.
