Bravo 1 by Pearce by Logan-Pearce Bravo 1 by Pearce by Logan-Pearce
Bark River's Bravo 1 without the thumb stub.

Oh and made by me for a friend. :D

Name: Bravo 1 1/2
Blade: 0-1
Handle: Claro Walnut


At first I was going to leave a hamon on it, like we had talked about. Then I found out that I really don't like the way that the hamon on 0-1 looks when completely finished. I did get it to finish out kind of dark, but it still didn't have the results that I was wanting. After cleaning it up and everything, I liked this look the best. It looks more like their Bravo 1, but still different enough that you can tell that I made it.

Plus my name is stamped on it. But that is besides the point. :P I have a lot of fun with these projects. Don't get me wrong, I love making my own designs. I get a certain satisfaction when I make these though.

One of these days I'm going to pick up a random magazine and make a replica of everything in it! Just because sometimes I want every knife that I see pictured. Okay~ Maybe not, but how cool would that be?!?!

Too cool for school.

As a blacksmith who hand forges his own knives and tools, I find this to be a most fitting knife for any practical man or collector. The handle is simple, yet elegant. It lacks originality to a slight degree, as there are many other designs such as this; that are very similar. At the same time the simplicity overwhelms me and it is strikingly visible that the artist put time and care into the technique and into the very blade knife itself.

Overall, the knife strikes me as a very down-to-earth design and user-friendly. The Pearce name shows that the artist is willing to put his own name on the line for quality as well.

Vision: 4.5/5
Originality: 4/5
Technique: 4.5/5
Impact: 55/

This is a knife I would use everyday, for sure. Very simple, yet beautiful in it's simplicity and because of it's excellent craftsmanship.

Hey, I like knives that actually work, and it's a huge bonus if they look good too.
