About the work

Sasha Trun, has been engaged in graffiti and street art since 1999. As both an organiser and active participant in one of the largest graffiti and street art movements, Trun is also part of three international graffiti collectives. Boasting a successful career, Trun has recently transitioned his skills into the realm of creating unique objects.

This Gift Knife, with a length of 21.5cm has been handcrafted skillfully by Trun. Each element, artisanally manufactured, starting with the blade material of Damascus, beautifully recognisable by the mottled pattern running through the steel blade. Underneath the metal is mammoth tooth with a copper spacer – all sitting perfectly on the lacewood handle.
The sheath is made from hand dyed Italian vegetable leather with the front parts of the patterned scabbard, applied by hand with unique linocuts and Italian penetrating leather paint, creating the final unique pattern. All fitting perfectly within the screen printed fabric bag.
