Metal Rose Knife by Logan-Pearce Metal Rose Knife by Logan-Pearce
Yet another failure. >.>

I mean! It's a protoype! :P

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.

OAL: 12"
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.

great concept though you work out the issues and I'll bet it would sell a ton. Keep hammering on!

It's not too bad, if you know how. It would take a little getting use to. :D

Doesn't look bad, but the handle looks rather flimsy.
