DÉLAVÉ FANTÔME DAGUE, ROSE, LILAS, VERTE, BLEUE

3 3/4" blade, 6 1/3" total length

Blade design based on Renaissance thrust daggers, used historically as hidden sleeve or concealable neck knives. We’ve taken a modern approach to this tactical weapon by conceiving it as a delicate garter dagger. Such versatility in the concealment of this high-grade stainless steel blade is due to a false edge on one side and the razor sharp edge on the other, which start at a heart-punctured bolster and convene to a needle-fine point.


The fleur motif of the Délavé Fantôme Dague takes inspiration from the execution of Queen Marie Antoinette and the overnight change in her appearance observed during her capture after the failed royal Flight to Varennes, for which the Marie Antoinette Syndrome would be named. In addition to the dagger’s history as a secret tool that can be concealed specifically near one’s neck, alluding to the direct process of the Queen’s death, it is documented that the hair of young Queen Marie Antoinette turned stark white, completely and rapidly overnight following her capture by the Revolutionaries. It is speculated that this syndrome is a dramatic form of Alopecia Areata Difusa, an issue with an autoimmune mechanism that is triggered by extreme sorrow or fear, as well as fits of rage, very high levels of stress, and unwelcome or unexpected news. There have been rare contemporary cases of Marie Antoinette Syndrome documented in bomb victims, primarily in the Second World War.


Fittingly, the handle of our Garter Dagger is adorned with resin flowers in gradated shades of rose-pink and ghostly white. Two genuine Swarovski crystals and a length of 100% pure silk ribbon finish off the handle. The handle is entirely cast, inlaid, and wrapped carefully by hand. $150.00

EDEN CHERUBIM THROWING DAGGER


5.5" total length, 2.5" blade, 3" handle


Named for the guardians of Eden.


"The man was free to eat from any tree in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Last of all, the God made a woman (Eve) from a rib of the man to be a companion for the man. In chapter three, the man and the woman were seduced by the serpent into eating the forbidden fruit, and they were expelled from the garden to prevent them from eating of the tree of life, and thus living forever. Cherubim were placed east of the garden, "and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep him away from the tree of life"

BRUTUS PUGIO CLIP POINT KNIFE


4 7/8" blade, 9 3/4" total length

“Beware the Ides of March.” The Ides of March is a date notorious for the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C, corresponding to modern calendars as March 15th. Ancient authors reference the dagger used by Marcus Brutus to stab Caesar as a pugio, other contemporary writings of the time agree that all conspirators made the pugio their weapon of choice for the assassination of Caesar, some later even killing themselves with the same weapon they put to their dictator's throat. The pugio dagger was a favorite amongst high ranking military for assassinations or suicide, due to it’s easy concealability in Roman robes.


Brutus Pugio is Rozliubit’s vision of the dagger that struck down an empire. Marcus Brutus’s weapon of choice, forever cemented in historic infamy. Brutus Pugio features layered black marble resin handle with blood red veining still dripping down the corinthian column grip.


Matte black powder-coated stainless steel clip point blade. Each piece is marbled and cast by hand for a one-of-kind finish.

VENA AMORIS F-S STILETTO KNIFE


11" total length, 7" blade, 4" handle


Our interpretation of the Fairbairn-Sykes knife, popularized around World War II for its superior performance in surprise attacks. The Vena Amoris stiletto knife sports the same long, slender blade, originally designed to easily penetrate a ribcage through several layers of clothing. The blade is supported by a weighty brass handle for precise, even grip.


Rozliubit's version enhances the original ringed design of the Fairbairn-Sykes handle with ten rings of white crystals. The bands of studded crystals alludes to a collection of engagement rings; hence "Vena Amoris", the vein in the left ring finger that was once believed to lead to one's heart. Traced back to ancient Egyptians, the engagement ring was once believed to be a part of the "bride's price", representing purchase and ownership of the bride. In this context, the following words from Fairbairn echo the treaties and violence in both romance and war:


"In close-quarters fighting there is no more deadly weapon than the knife. It is essential that the blade have a sharp stabbing point and good cutting edges, because an artery torn through tends to contract and stop the bleeding. If a main artery is cleanly severed, the wounded man will quickly lose consciousness and die." $100.00

ET TU BABE, PEARL


3" blade, 5 3/4" total length

The supposed last words of Julius Caesar, “Et tu Brute,” (when translated from Latin: "you too, Brutus?") were directed towards his faithless friend Marcus Brutus at the moment of Caesar’s assassination. These famous last words were entirely fabricated by William Shakespeare, for his play. The phrase as we know it is derived from the findings of Roman historian Suetonius, who reported that others have claimed Caesar's last words were the Greek phrase "καὶ σὺ, τέκνον," transliterated as "Kai su, teknon?", which means "You too, child?" or "You too, young man?”. We’ve named this weapon after the more accurate phrase, while also following the tradition set by Shakespeare in giving Caesar’s last words a contemporary twist.


The Et Tu Babe knife features a petite column, sculpted from shimmery marbled pearl resin, which finishes off a slim hollow ground blade. Satin finished, hardened stainless steel blade and a brass finger guard. Each handle is marbled and cast by hand for a one-of-kind finish. $150.00

CHERUBIM CARYATID DAGGER, AMYGDALA, NOCTIS


5" blade, 8 7/8" total length

Cherubim, or cherubs, are angelic attendants of God. They are ranked second highest in the ninefold angelic celestial hierarchy, falling below only the Seraphim. The more commonly known representation of cherubs in art is that of winged, chubby, beautiful children; meant to convey innocent souls. I’ve manifested these cherubim as caryatid, usually female figures serving as an architectural support in classical style buildings. Keeping in line with our theme of classical Greek architecture, used throughout the Ides Of March Collection.


Threcia Grus is a weighty ceremonial knife, worthy of a king's funeral. Features dark and light granite cherubs in hand marbled and cast resin and a gold-plated rosary crucifix. Double-sided stainless steel blade.


From the Ides of March collection.
