Yet another failure. >.>
I mean! It's a protoype!
If you haven't noticed, I like to mix my knifemaking with just about everything. Whether it's blacksmith or jewelry techniques. I'm always trying to make a functional piece of deadly art. This was the first rose knife I made that led me to make [link]
which I've since improved.
So it was a learning experience. Like all of my other failures, I usually don't let it see the light of day, but they are always close at hand.
Blade Length: 5"
Blade Material: 5160
Handle Material: Twisted 5160. The leaves, sepal, and petals are all from 1/16" saw blades. The leaves are pinned onto the stem with brass pins.
I attempted to do some carving on it...which was the main reason I feel it was a failure. The other side is worse. >.< I came up with a much more simple design, which I will probably make later when I get around to it.
It was a fun knife to make and this will be my last rough/failed knife post. My next three knives will be a frontier style knife, a tactical style knife, and a sculpture-ish type knife. All three of which I'm currently working on. Hopefully by the time I'm finished posting all my crappy jewelry and chopsticks up, the three will be finished.
