I have just the person in mind, Warner said, and the knife was by Dellana. She was an award winning goldsmith and jewelry designer before she was captured by the lure of Damascus steel under the watchful eyes of legendary Jim Schmidt. When I owned Blade Magazine I established a scholarship to the ABS School--she was awarded the first, and was going full time two years later. She is an Art Knife Invitational knifemaker, and says she is committed to creating the most beautiful, well-crafted art knives that I am able. She has done an outstanding job with the example in this auction. Others think so too, surf the purveyor sites--Dellana knives are typically priced at $25,000--if they have one, which is rare.

THE MAKER: Henry Frank started making knives in 1961, and in 1970 thanks to attention by John Ember he left his engineering job to become a full time knifemaker. He is a legend for the awesome design and full engraving on all of his knives. He has been a longtime member of the Knifemakers' Guild from its earliest days, and a mainstay at the Art Knife Invitational, which is considered the top 25 art knife makers in th e world. The Blade Magazine ranked him No. 10 on their list of the top knifemakers in the first 40 years of knifemaking. His knives are among the most valued and highest demand, and can be seen in the aftermarket regularly being offered from $13,000 and up. There is a reason his knives command that price. It is often said it is not when one of his knives are sold, but when another collector allows you to buy one.
