Theater knife

Recommended Posts

This is meant to look like a WWII theater knife, something else rehandled like a Kbar.  Forged L6, acid etched and stone tumbled.   The fittings are all etched and tumbled mild with a bit of micarta thrown in.  I'm not sure about the but cap or the cap nut.  I'm still fussing with it.

Is it a leather stacked handle Geoff?

I like it Geoff.  I could easily imagine that to be a bayonet that somebody cut down and put a handle on out in the field.

Yep, stacked leather, it's the first one I've ever done.  I'm reasonably pleased for a first one.

Looks good!  I've seen some with and some without the skullbreaker pommel nut.  My favorites are the ones with sections of plexiglass from shot-down airplane canopies mixed with the leather.

I think that you pulled off the look well.  It looks like something someone's grandfather carried through the Pacific islands.

Here is the finished piece.  I resized the skull crusher (actually made about three more) and went with a round pommel.  All of the furniture is mild steel, acid etched, stone tumbled, and blued.  I think it has the look I was after, like someone had seen a Kbar, but not really looked at it.
