William Henry Knives Steampunk Viperfish Engraving

Recommended Posts

 

Seems like forever I've been working on a major project for William Henry Studios - a steampunk suite for one of their B12 model folding knives. Here’s the beauty shot. The details: William Henry model B12 scales, 4 inches long 416 stainless steel, hand engraved with 24 karat gold and copper inlays.


Lots of fun, I learned a lot and sharpened my technique. Look for more steampunk themes in the near future!

You can see a goodly number of in-progress photos at my blog, and my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Thanks for looking!

Wow...

 

Sometimes I see stuff on here that is beautiful, but I know that I could some day achieve if I work at improving my skills. There are other days that I see things so stunning that while I understand the steps involved, I don't dare to dream of matching the craftsmanship necessary to pull it off.

 

Then there are days I see something that so blows my mind that I don't have any understanding of how it was done. This is one of those days...

 

...absolutely beautiful.

I can't imagine that much fine detail work. It would make me explode.

 

I really love the tentacles made from bicycle/motorcycle chain (don't know the technical name).

 

you have done well.

Wow, thanks guys! You obviously have sweet spots in your hearts for steampunk. Well, I should have guessed that steampunk and sharp things would just go together. :)

 

Thanks for all the kind words,

 

Tom
