A friend of mine asked me if I could make him a knife (knife shaped object maybe) to use for a prop in his churches "Living Last Supper" presentation. He is playing the part of Peter and its based on the Da Vinci painting. He supplied the materials: a rusty 1/8" x 2" mild steel flat bar, a very old 5 point deer antler, some brass to cast the "hilt" and a picture of the painting. I had the brass rod for the brad. He also told me that he wanted it to look hammered and sort of worn or roughly made. This is what I came up with the blades about 8":



The picture that he gave me to go off of:


For my first hidden tang knife like project I thought it came out pretty good. He seemed really happy with it.

I don't guess its bad form to post things in multiple places [wink] anyway thanks for looking.

Just make something!

pretty cool. 

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

Nice prop, You may find a niche doing those props for others in theater.
