DescriptionElder Dragonback is a variant/progression of Dragonback. Where Dragonback uses two Half Persian 3 in 1 chains connected on the top and bottom with European 4 in 1 connections, Elder Dragonback uses Half Persian 4 in 1 and European 6 in 1.
The weave, as a result of the symmetrical form of Half Persian 4 in 1, is the same on the "top" and "bottom" of the weave, unlike Dragonback which has two distinctly different sides.
The piece pictured was made using 18 gauge (1.2mm) stainless steel wound on a 5/16" mandrel and has an AR of 6.51 before accounting for springback. I would estimate the true AR to be close to 7.
