I was just bored and had some time to kill. So I decided to butcher her up and put it with a different background.
The knife gave me some trouble. It was seriously an emotional roller coaster because one hour it would look amazing and then the next it would look like crap. I blame it on terrorist, but you know.
The carving of the handle wasn't so bad. It was actually more enjoyable than finishing the blade. The new acid I've been using isn't the same concentration as what I'm use to, so I'm probably going to go back to the one I was using before.
In retrospect the knife didn't turn out horrible
, but it certainly didn't come out as good as I had wanted. Given my time frame I won't be able to make the one I designed for the AKA show. So I'm stuck with this one. It is the worst of the ones that I am taking, but its a lot better than most of what I had last year.
Luckily, my next few are super awesome, so I'm not really let down by this one. I knew when I started that there was no way I would have a chance in the Fighter contest of the AKA show, so I was really doing it for practice and fun.
I'm super excited for my Frost knife to be finished. Logan Pearcewww.pearceknives.com
