So! This month’s Blade Magazine which is the Feb 2014 issue, will be in circulation for at least another week. My updated Avatar knife as well as a full page article about me and how I came to make Avatar is feature on the inside back cover. The only bad thing is they got my words confused a little bit. It says that I want to ‘be’ someone else, when I said I want to ‘beat’ them. lol.
I’m back! Yay. Hmm. So I missed like a week and a half worth of posts. Fear not! I’ll be posting said knives in December, since I will be working on my knives for the Arkansas show that month.
This knife is my future Cancer Benefit knife. While it’s a mock up of the knife that I have been working on for the project. It won’t be available for at least a year though as details are still being worked out. I’m going to try to get the ribbon symbol on the handle I think. Hopefully it will be awesome and help out as much as possible.
Blade Length: 5”
Blade Material: 5160
Handle Material: Carbon Fiber
I feel like I should haven’t have made the blade as wide. Other than that I’m pretty happy with it.

Walking Dead: Michonne’s Knife
Have you ever noticed in the comics how her sword is usually really straight and angular? Maybe I just noticed it a few times, but when I decided that I wanted to use my giraffe bone, which is purple, then I thought of her sword. I, of course, love the walking dead. So I’m happy that it is coming back today! I didn’t put sharp lines on it, but I still thought of her while making the knife.
I missed a day on my 31 days of knives. I did manage to get on yesterday, but I had some issues when uploading the knife. By the time I had it all fixed it was today.
Hope you guys are having a great weekend!
The Worn Knuckles from Diablo 3.
If you have played Diablo 3 and started out as a Monk then you will recognize these. I didn’t put a brown wrapped handle on it, because I couldn’t do it exactly like it is from the game. People get mad about stuff like that.
I did make them look as worn as I could though.
Short sword scimitar
Blade Length: 17”
Handle Material: Thuya burl
I wanted to do an actual scimitar, but man those are pretty big. So I figured I would do a slightly smaller version of it that I could manage in my photo box.
Tomorrow’s ‘knife’ won’t be a knife at all. It won’t be like anything else I’ve ever made before. You’re excited. I know.
OAL: 13 1/2”
Handle: Dyed and stabilized bone.
The bone actually is blue on this side, which was actually green in the beginning. On the other side it’s like….4 different colors. It’s weird and awesome. My next knife is a sword. Short sword. Scimitar. Yeah.
I’m hoping that I can take a better picture than I did of this one. As you can tell from all of my knife pictures, I have trouble taking pictures of larger blades. The scimitar is quite a bit larger than this, so I’m still messing with the pictures. Hopefully I has something good for you guys to look at.
That being said I have something aweeesome lined up for later this week. I’m excited for it, even though it’s pretty simple.
