Happy 2014 y’all!
The new year’s always a good time to look back on the things we’ve accomplished in order to assess how far we’ve gone. Today I’m just going to show you my journey towards perfecting the crysknife I’ve set out to build–and in the process also improving my resin casting skills, among other things. It’s been a long journey indeed–thanks for coming along with the ride!
Pictured above are three generations of crysknives, my very first one being on the topmost–note the “crack” in the middle where the two halves failed to meet. The middle knife is a product of the second mould–you’ll see some improvements from the first mould.
The bottom mould is the third, and perfect casting–note the “cornered” pommel with the triangle inscribed in it. This one is currently being primed with a white base for painting and detail work–the first coating of primer so far. It’s so beautiful I actually want to keep it for myself, but I’m reserving this one for my first customer. More announcements soon, and a photo-op with the finished product is in the pipeline.
Thanks for being patient! I’m targeting producing around 5 knives for January, so if you’re interested, kindly shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
