Mako knife by Logan Pearce by Logan-Pearce Mako knife by Logan Pearce by Logan-Pearce
Rumor about this knife: If you close your eyes, it becomes invisible. :O

Name: Mako
Blade Length: 4 1/4"
OAL: 9 5/16"
Blade Material: 5160/1075 Ladder Pattern Welded Steel
Handle Material: Green Dyed and Stabilized Brain Coral
Notes: Took away about a weeks worth of my life carving this with hand files.


This design was once Twisted Wing; but then I realized after making that knife, that it didn't have the same look and feel as it's sister Avatar. So I modified it a bit and now it looks like this. An upgrade that I like, because blue and green are both my favorite colors, but green is my super uber favorite color. :D

This is the younger sister of


Since 'Yes' won the poll, you get a preview of my precious before I send it off to get professionally photographed. Hopefully they can do a better job of capturing the awesomeness that I fail to do, because this picture does not do it justice.

I might be toning down the layer count a bit after this one. I need to use a different types of metal. I'm considering a three different metal billet so that I can capture black, gray, and silver colors in my damascus. All I know is this one, in the light will daze you for a second. >.< Which wasn't really what I was going for. I wanted darker colors, but I still love this knife.


Oh and love me on Facebook pleeease! Some of my other knifemaker friends have been threatening to add my page and stuff. I look like a total n00bsteak with only 100 people when they have like hundreds. ;_;

Wow, awesome ! But is that one single piece of metal with the handle on it, or different pieces together ?

I know I don't look like much but I've been wanting to make knifes and swords and I'm thinking about making this knife into a sword if you allow me that is and I will give you full credit!!!

I really appreciate the craftsmanship and texture of this knife. It has very clean flowing lines. My only critique is that I wish the striped pattern on the green coral handle was going in the same direction as the grooves on the knife itself are. It would give the piece a more continuous flow rather than feel like an interruption of the pattern. It is only with this piece of the series that I feel this way, the other two have a more solid continuity with the non-metal section of the knife.

You know I have to ask...how much? or is it for sale at all?

PS: have you seen a pair of bottle openers lying about the shop? lol ;)

She will be for $350, but it won't be for sale for a while. I have arrangements for this one, a remade Avatar, and two others to be photographed together. So it will be a minimum of a month, if not two, before she is for sale.

P.S. tomorrow you will see! ;)
