Dragon's Claw Damascus Steel Karambit
Dragon’s have always fascinated and terrified us. Folklore stories of magic, battles and destruction have been passed on from generation to generation. One such story, was about the young man named Darius, who found a dragon’s claw. The dragon’s claw was not a normal claw found on any other animal. It was made of steel and was magical. Darius soon discovered that the person who possessed the dragon’s claw would become a clairvoyant and would be able to see into the future. Darius used this ability to amass wealth and power, always knowing the moves of his enemies. Later in life he saw the death of his beloved wife. Although her death had not happened he could not stop grieving for her. Years went by and he continued to grieve. It was only after she had truly passed away that he realized he had wasted these last years with her. Darius threw the dragon’s claw in the ocean out of anger and vowed to live every day in the moment, not forsaking anyone or anything.
