Ravenclaw by Ugrik Ravenclaw by Ugrik
Thanx to Leeran here in deviantart for inspiration i have managed to finish another knife. I must say that it took twice as long as usual because i couldnt stop admiring it during the work process :D.

Overall length is 35cm and blade length 20 cm. Blade width is 5,5 mm. Fittings are casted from bronze - eyes on the fitting are made from silver. Handle is polished ebony. Blade itself is made black using same thing thats used to darken guns and rifles and there is snake pattern on the back of the blade. Razorsharp :)

They are great pieces, but I have a question: does the engraving and carving affect in any way the toughness of the blade?

Definitely. Its important to leave enough material to keep the blade strong - not really a problem with such a big knife with 5.5mm back thickness. Hardening and heattreating them properly is also important.

Now that's a beaut. The pommel is rather large though, I would consider smashing skulls with it, if you wanted to actually fight with the dagger.

Nice looking blade. A piece of art but with the appearance for functionality in battle. I always prefer a Tanto blade and this is a great deviation of it. Blade would look good in a well lighted glass case. What type steel was used for the blade?

:iconugrik:
Ugrik Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
Thanx. Type of steel should be G65 if i remember correctly.

I have a huge knife fetish. If you are into this sort of thing. I sincerely believe I was a government assassin in another life who liked to up close and personal. I have seen the same knife in my dreams for years. Perhaps I will see it again someday. My father makes knives and uses deer antler as the handle. Your work is beautiful.

That would make a brilliant hunting, although I'd make the handle a bit grippier and change the skull cracer to something harder.

I dont want to make copies of the same knife - not without a very good reason like a matching pair or knives for specific group etc. It wouldnt be fair for the owner of the knife. Similar designs are a different story :D

this is frickin beautiful.
is metal hard to cast? do you need a lot of special equipment?
Reply
:iconugrik:
Ugrik Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010
Thanx!

its very subjective - its not hard but still quite a lot of work. There are ways to cast with very simple setup (pretty much same way it was done 1000 years ago) but i use vacumcasting that requires fair amount of special machinery.
