Twisted Fighter .1 by Logan-Pearce Twisted Fighter .1 by Logan-Pearce
Name: Twisted Fighter
Blade Length: 7 1/2"
OAL Length: 13"
Blade Material: Twist pattern welded steel made from 1080/15N20 .
Handle Material: Walnut Burl
Fittings: Stainless steel guard and pins.


The original image of the knife is here: [link]

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.

:happybounce: I'm super excited for my Frost knife to be finished. :D

Not quite vertigo-inducing, but that blade is still beautifully done!

Yeah it will be. These are a bit more expensive than my normal work though. I'm not really sure if I'm going to sell it yet, since I wanted to put it in the contest for best fighter at the show I'm going to.

They wider weld pattern set off by by the the scale carving works well. The handle does take ones eye away from the blade; perhaps not exactly what a smith might prefer....

You make a great point. I hate that it does that, but I kind of wanted it to in a way. since the knife didn't come out the way I wanted, then I had to improvise and this came out. :P

i love the shape of the handle but feel it could do with some antler or hog bone to tie it in with the blade.

beautiful knife though congrats

I love the Handle carving you did here. Reminds me of bark on a tree or a Pangolin's armour.

Thank you very much. :d It reminds me of armor as well. I wanted it to look like each section was coming out of the one before it.
