I only had my crummy iPod Touch camera to document my progress while I was sanding the crysknife butt so you probably won’t notice the details on the pic below.
I used to think that the crysknife butt was just round with a triangle inscribed in it. But after close inspection in the scene where Paul kills Feyd, you’ll see that the butt of the crysknife has corners… it isn’t round at all! That’s where my new electric sander comes in handy. Awhile ago I was able to put in the “corners”; while sanding I would check out Sting’s death scene screenshot on a nearby iPad.
You probably can’t see it but I’m incorporating the edges in the crysknife I’m making. That’s one thing the Greyzon version incorporated correctly! Here’s a clearer screencap of Sting’s death:
See, the knife butt or pommel isn’t round at all, but has these edges! I’m just really excited as to how the crysknife would turn out–it’s becoming exactly what I envisioned it to be. I’m not going to produce something less than perfect!
