Named the Kanga-Roo-Joey, this Kangaroo dagger within a dagger was made by the late Larry Hendricks but we do not have the exact completion date . The set was later sent to Richard Spinale who completed the engraving in 1999. While we cannot state with absolute certainty, we believe the steel is 440C. All the pins, bolsters and escutcheons are solid 14K gold. Larry's mark is on the face side of the large blade and Richard has inscribed his mark on the back side of the blade. The large blade is also marked KD3 on the tang on the back side.The large blade measures 7 5/8 inches with an overall length of 13 3/4 inches. The small (Joey) blade measures 3 1/8 inches with an overall length of 6 3/4 inches. With the Joey in place, the total overall lenght is 14 1/2 inches. Richard's engraving is nothing short of exquisite with exceptional detail and relief. The spine and top and bottom spacers of the large piece are engraved and inlaid with 14K gold. The scales of the Joey have fancy gold pins and the rear bolster, which forms the full piece buttcap, is engravd stainless steel and 14K gold. One flaw exists on this piece, which is a 5/8 inch crack, which has been repaired, in the face side ivory scale, running from the top of the bolster to the spine. Even so, this is a beautiful Kangaroo which exemplifies the craftsmanship and artistry of both Larry Hendricks and Richard Spinale.
