Blacksmith forged, this functional dragon sculpure door knocker is my smallest ever and would fit perfectly on a bedroom door. This listing is for the actual one shown in the above photos.

Hanging at 5 1/8" high and 4" wide, this dragon knocker has one mission: save your knuckles...
Well, at least that was his primal purpose but he could also easily pass as a wall hanging forged sculpture.

First, let's talk about the dragon's head, it started out as 1/4" solid square stock iron and came to life on the anvil under the hammer blows at a yellow/orange heat. Details were then added using hand held punches that I made (eye punch, nostril punch, etc...).

After the head is completed, it's back to the fire to heat and form the body which actually forms a looped handle with a long taper that wraps itself around the body of the dragon.

For the wings, I drew them and had them laser cut , braught them to an orange heat in the forge and hammered them all around to give them texture and match the hand forged dragon.
My logo signature "Naz" is stamped on the back of the wings.

I drilled a hole in the dragon's neck to insert the pivot pin so it moves freely allowing the dragon's whole body to rock back and forth in a knocking motion.
The pivot pin is welded to the wings which are secured to the door (or wall) with 2 screws.

The back plate is a 3/16" thick flat bar that measures 1 1/4" x 1 1/4". It has been hammered all around , this plate is also fixed to the door (or wall) with 2 screws.

For cleaning, I use the wire brush followed by a light sand paper. This highlights the hammer marks.
For protection I brushed on two coats of Renaissance wax which is a high quality wax used in museums worldwide on armory, swords, precious metals, etc...

Included are 4 decorative wood screws that match the ironwork.

Since all my dragons are hand forged one at a time, they each have their own personality and character, not one is the same.For this reason, they each have their own personal listing, this listing is for the forged dragon door knocker you see in the photos above.

This signed metal sculpture is a highly decorative and functional piece of art that will last for a long time.

Thanks for the interest !
