A Cool Avian Blade Design…

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Every once in a while I come across a knife that, while interesting by itself, is made even more interesting by the creative integration of strategically incorporated props…

Here is an interesting blade, or set of blades. Or whatever. It in fact looks like an ivory scaled, damascus bladed folder, mounted atop a custom designed blade display, strategically designed to make it look like the head of a… Pterodactyl? A cockatiel maybe… I dunno.

Either way, from the site of Herbst Knife Making Academy we have the quite appropriately named “Ivory Art Folder”. ‘Cause that’s exactly what it is. A work of art. In ivory and damascus steel. Even half closed it looks cool…

Quite an interesting piece, incorporating a very unique serration design on the blade, as well as an amazing level of detail on what I’d call the “eye” of the great damascus cockatiel…

Great stuff eh? The back of the grip was also treated to some equally unique styling cues…

All in all, some really great work here… Though the mounting itself seems evil enough on it’s own to be used as a weapon… A punch dagger or something…

Gotta love how blade art can be so evil looking and cool at the same time!

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
