For those of you that have been around for a little while, then you will recognize my ‘Frost’ knife. It is on the inside cover of Knives 2014. Last I checked they were having a sale on them at http://www.shopblade.com/If are just not joining my journey to possibly becoming awesome, then you probably figured out that I love knives. lol. I don’t just like to make them, I enjoy collecting them as well. But what I love even more is collecting books on knives. Knowledge is the reason I’m able to jump around to so many different styles of knives and I personally get it from books and magazines. My aim is to own every knife book in existence. At the moment I have around 250+ knife books or knife related books, not counting the magazines. Luckily, I like to read.  Annnd the weekend is finally here! I do hope you guys have a good one and I plan on working on a knife or two this weekend to give you all something cool to look at. Be safe!

The last bowie that I made. My picture of it was pretty bad, but luckily Caleb took up my slack and made a great picture of it for me. 

This and Maleficent were the main two knives that I took a week to focus on before the Blade Show. I was wondering what I could do if focused on only a few knives rather than what I typically make in a day.

I plan on taking a few hours out of my day to start making stuff like this. Normally I spend 10-12 hours a day working on my Remnant Knives or pending orders. The rest is divided between designing and the smaller work like twisting wire or something like that where I can be taking a break from physical labor, but still be working on something knife related. Who knows though! I do love making Remnant knives. >.<

Maleficent Preview.Which is what it is, pretty much. If you didn&#8217;t know I wasn&#8217;t happy with the way my filigree came out. I was under a time crunch and had more screw ups than I could live with.Plus! I still have to make a silver sheath for it. Since I have so much more work to do on the knife, I have taken this handle off. Destroyed all of the filigree work that you guys seen me do and what is on this picture.This picture was taken before I had a long time to think about what I wanted to do and talked with the owner of this knife, before I went and took it apart. I think the knife is awesome and beautiful. Don&#8217;t get me wrong.I think it even more so now that this doesn&#8217;t exist. I wanted this knife to be the pentacle of my current works. At the time, I didn&#8217;t feel like it was.So~ Once I have the knife re-finished and the sheath made, I will show you how I made the sheath which has 4x as much filigree as this handle.In the end, when I show you my completed Maleficent knife, it will be something that you have never seen before. A step above the knife pictured here, even though they will have the same skeleton. That being said, it was a long month+ of progress that you guys saw. In reality that was about 15% of the actual work put into the knife. lol. I hope you guys enjoyed it and things around here will go back to the way it was, where I&#8217;m not spamming you with photos on the daily.

And my filigree work is finished for this one. It isn&#8217;t perfect, which upsets me a little bit, but I was under a time crunch while doing it, so I can&#8217;t complain a whole lot. lol.Tomorrow you will see the finished knife!

I&#8217;m heating up the metal and silver to solder them all together. This is the picture of me soldering my liner on the knife. Tomorrow you will see the finished sides!

Almost there! I still have to drill some more holes and then put the handle material in. I need to add a few others things to it, but it is 75% done. 

At this point, I only have two more photos of my work in progress. On Weds, you will see the ‘finished’ knife, which actually… Well I’ll tell you about it when I post the last picture

Now! I have been twisting the wires and forming them to fit my design. Mainly I am just using tweezers and an exacto knife to move and line everything up.

Under every piece I have a bit of solder. So I will heat it up and boom! The whole thing will become one piece. Everything in the world will be right and people will cheer.

Well, maybe not..

Logan Pearce Knives

Now we heat things up!

Here the four pieces of silver are being heated to melting temperature on a fire brick that I use for most of my soldering. Once it has hit it’s melting temperature it will turn into a ball.

After making a few hundred of these and twisted wire I begin arranging the wire and balls on my handle. Tmrw you will see how things look around the half way point of the handle! 

But this is how I make the balls for my granulation and filigree knives and jewelry.

Logan Pearce Knives

After the wire has been twisted, I cut the end piece off that was wrapped around the pen. I cut this piece into 4 pieces that are about the same size. With this length that I have cut and twisted, I will have 4 good sized pieces of twisted wire, that I will go back and make each one individually tighter. I will then curve and manipulate all the wires to fit on the handle in the design I have drawn out.

For each wire, I need at least one silver ball. Since I am getting four wires, I want four balls. I also prefer my handle to be made of the same kind of silver. This process usually spans across a week of twisting, cutting, and etc. before I have enough pieces for the knife handle and sheath.

The handle on this knife will have a little over 500 pieces of silver. The sheath will have somewhere along 3,000 pieces. 

More to come soon!
