I like weapons and combat knife is a necessity. So... Just when I've started working on the costume, I also started working on the combat knife... and the journey has been a royal pain in the butt. It took me some attempts to get the knife nice. I think it was the third attempt. I already hardened it. I really wanted the knife to be attached with magnets to the armor because I thought I'd attach it to my shin. What a stupid idea. I put the magnets inside, I even filled it whole. But then, guess what happened. I tested it and the knife fell and BROKE into two parts. I'm actually glad it happened. Why? Because I was glad I didn't spend more time on it. Anyway, many months happened and after more attempts I finally got the knife right. I was very discouraged by that fail and rather kept working on it in silence in case I'd destroy it. Again. Anyway, here it is. I made the handle more profiled and I made the edge of the blade very dull. There are no sharp angles or anything. Here is me giving the blade the black layer. Covered all parts with painter's tape. Finished spraying. And here is the finished knife. All weathered and such. HOWEVER, I'm not finished. After I've done my Magnum pistols, I fell in love with their colors so much that I'm repainting my knife. Already removed all the paint and I'll be sharing progress of me doing a new paintjob soon.
