Helios

Recommended Posts

Helios was the personification of the sun in Greek mythology. Helios was imagined as a handsome god crowned with the shining aureole of the sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day and back down to earth circling Oceanus and, having traveled through the world ocean returned to the East at night. Like the sun that Helios personifies, the handle of this knife resembles the glowing, constantly changing surface of the sun, and the blade features a unique hexagon pattern.

That is certainly an eye catcher! How did you do the hexagon pattern?

It was acid etched into the blade after heat treat and before the handle was attached. I used prespaced vinyl cut out at a sign shop. Thanks for the kind words!
