Inspired by the legendary Greek kopis, the Dervish Knives Ursa Minor TAD Edition is a modern take on a historical classic. One of the most adopted styles throughout history, the curved blade has seen use by numerous cultures throughout the Near East. All of these cultures witnessed the effectiveness of the design first-hand and modified it to make it their own. John Gonzalez of Dervish Knives continues this tradition with the Ursa Minor.
The two stage grind of the blade offers versatile functionality, with a thick front portion ideal for chopping and a thinner recurve suited to fine work. The profile and texturing on the handle provides an exceptional grip, while the balance keeps the knife light in the hand. With a long-standing passion for knives and swords and a degree in graphic design and illustration, John’s unique perspective yields knives with clean lines and a distinct visual beauty. The Ursa Minor is no different; this is classic Dervish at its best.
