A Cool Ivory Gunblade…

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

So guess what… I found another Gunblade…

Brevete 22 cal. Knife Revolver

This, my friends, is the Brevete Pinfire .22 cal Knife revolver. Nice eh? Ivory grips on a Revolver  is nothing new. Ivory grips on darn near the whole frame of a revolver, with a blade attached to the front… Now *that* you don’t see every day.

If you’re gonna bring a knife to a gun fight, you might as well do it in style. And this would certainly fit the bill for any particular porpoise. Yes. I said Porpoise. No, it’s not a mistake, bit your tongue for even suggesting it! It’s just that Porpoises tend to be much more discerning about these kinds of things than humans.  So there. 😀

As a side note, for some odd reason, looking at this revolver evokes memories of a funny little poem:

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other,

One was blind and the other couldn’t, see
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout “hooray!”
A paralysed donkey passing by,
Kicked the blind man in the eye,
Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,

A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came to arrest the two dead boys, If you don’t believe this story’s true,
Ask the blind man he saw it too!

Personally, I think this duel would have made  so much more sense if these two dead boys each had a  Brevete Knife Revolver in .38 special, with ebony black grips. I’m sure even the blind man would have been impressed…

But that might just be me.  o_O

A Cool Gamblin’ Gunblade.

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Today, per popular request, I thought I’d treat you to one of the sweetest gun blades I’ve ever come across. A very unique gun blade that is so cool in so many ways, I hardly know where to begin. So I guess I’ll start with a pic:

Now *that* is a cool gunblade. Exactly *how* cool? Let me count the ways… 😀

First off, this piece of art is a study in beautiful black damascus steel. And my regulars will all know that black is a BIG plus in my book. This little knife is a beauty. A 5″ black damascus blade, that folds into a beautifully contoured black damascus grip, adorned with a set of sweet sambar stag horn scales. Just amazing.

And then we have the fully functional black powder muzzle loader pistol in .22. All in black, with beautifully done scrollwork along the length of the barrel and backstrap/grip.

Seriously, a black damascus folder, especially one like this, is a thing of beauty all by itself. But a black damascus folder attached to a black steel gun? That’s just too darn cool for school.

And as if that weren’t enough, the knife was made to stow in a beautiful book set, complete with black powder kit and a pair of elephant ivory dice to boot.

This, ladies and germs, is functional art. None of that “fantasy” garbage here, the knife is fully functional, the pistol is fully functional, and the whole thing is just an amazing amalgamation of art, sinister lines and beautiful darkness all put together to make a single, awesome kit of uncompromising WIN.

What more can I say? I’m not the gambling sort, but I’d certainly take it up if it gave me an excuse to carry something like this around… 😀
