Cult of Cthulhu Dagger

Dagger recovered in a police raid of a Cthulhu Cult group in the wooded swamps to the south of New Orleans in March of 1925. It has an ivory colored handle with steel blade, and is similar in materials and design to a dagger recovered from a Cultist in an raid in the same area in 1908. The sheaths of both dagger bear the same winged star cult symbol. Dagger is slightly over 12 inches long.

Based on the literary creation of H.P. Lovecraft.

Hi,  Yes I do.  I have to change the blades sometimes because of an inconsistent supply of suitable and affordable blades.  Contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com  for details if you're interested.   Thanks,
Joe

I really like this design for Cthulhu. Have you ever considered doing a larger one of this style that could stand alone?

That could work. I did make one as a handle for a beer tapper.

This looks gorgeous! I'm planning on making a Cthulhu altar and this looks like a perfect addition to that.

Is it still possible to commission one of these and what would the price range be with shipping to sweden?

Thank you. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Very nice! If you were bringing one of these to the regular sacrificial meetings you'd be the envy of every cultist who had to use more mundane stabbin' tools.

The saggy-skinned skull face is rather disturbing.

Thanks Britta. As I write this two sacrificial victims huddle together in a dark cold place waiting for the end. I'll show no mercy; Cthulhu wants his avacado dip.

"Dark and cold place?" Did you shove them in the freezer again? I guess it would give them a nice crunch.

They didn't put the celantro in the basket so they got the freezer again.

Thanks. Contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com if you want info on acquiring one. I have to incorporate various types of blades I find available and constuct sheaths accordingly.

Nice work, Joe, that's quite a find! Did they DNA test for blood on the blade? Whoever designed this, possibly centuries ago, had a nice design sense- it even looks like it would fit into a hand nicely.

Thank you, Paul. The dagger seems to have been in continous service after being released by the police, and as recently as last Tuesday at 12.00 midnight; but just guessing. The dna would be rather corrupted by subsequent usage. It does fit rather well in the hand and can be plunged, I mean I think could be plunged into a victim easily without slipping from the grasp, even when well soaked with blood.
