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.

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.

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.
