Critique by Fishbertus Mar 20, 2012, 4:52:51 PM
The "Mako" is definitely a very visually appealing knife. The wavy curves and patterns are very smooth and look great, but not one hundred percent original. I can't actually give you much advice as it seems you are pretty familiar with metalwork, but if you aren't already I encourage you to try other styles and/or other weapons or jewelry, like rings, axes or anything else you come up with. If you ever need further inspiration, you could look at fantasy video games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As my first critique, I am happy that the deviation is very good.

I would say that I'm definitely in the 'Opposite' camp to the reviewer 'Fishbertus'. I think that because you predominantly create knives, it shows in your work and ability to come up with GREAT designs and 'INCREDIBLE' finished pieces! The fact that you aren't doing a lot of 'other things' (Rings, Axes, Jewelry, etc..) is a 'good thing' in my opinion, as there is WAY too much mediocre work out there today...

The MAKO is hands down, one of the most beautiful knives that I have personally seen and although I like the patterning in 'Avatar' a bit better, this knife would be my first choice. One of the first things the viewer see's is the 'green' color and it absolutely 'Pops' and gives the knife that 'unique' feeling right from the get-go. The other thing is the 'continuity' of the 'Damascus Grain' is superbly done and really quite beautiful and as a result, pulls it all together. The Return and Finger guard are nice and obvious and it also looks like it would fit better in my hand and I'm more comfortable with a bigger finger guard for 'Manipulation' and 'Safety' reasons. Finally, the graduated, upturned spine and tip is the reason that I wouldn't hesitate to pick this one over another knife. Once again speaking for myself, the 'Traditional' end works much better for my particular needs VS something like the 'Avatar'.... Having said that, I would have BOTH knives in my collection and would likely 'play' and 'show off' both knives Frequently!

Cheers,

/Joe..

...I have never before thought that knives could be so beautiful and artistic. I mean, I've had male friends who were rather excited about getting their first pocket knife, and I always just shrugged it off. But you have stunned me. I wasn't expecting to see such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship whilst browsing DA today. I want to thank you for sharing :D.Love Hug Huggle! +fav
