Lahcen Ait Said has been making daggers with his brother Mohamed since 1997; both learned the craft from their father. Lahcen not only specializes in all types of daggers, but also makes more specialized items like jewelry and other decorative work. Lahcen has always been engaged in the wider artisan community and serves as a member of Marche Maroc, a national association of Moroccan artisans.
The distinctive curve on this blade is a signature design of the dagger makers of Kelaat M'Gouna. This dagger is unique as the handle and sheath is made entirely from bone. Each dagger is entirely handmade, from the handle to the sheath.
