Ho Lee Sh--
No kidding, this is by FAR the most engraved area on a single piece for me
Is the engraving more difficult because of the steel type and hardness? Probably worse then on a gun frame?
IIRC, this is before it gets sent for the heat treat.
Yup, it's in the same state as when Nathan machines it so it actually cuts rather nicely...the biggest problem with this one is working around the size.
Your work looks great Chip, but that blade looks huge!
This thing is a lot of fun...
but not to be trifled with...
All in all a truly spectacular piece that would have made minced meat of the KOD course. The Evil Genius and Good Doctor both deserve medals for this one.
Thanks, but it REALLY is huge!
Just some cleanup/background texture and shading left
“Just” on a piece like this will mean how many more hours Chip? You have a unique set with all the models you have added your signature engraving too, do you ever see yourself selling any of those?
Ooof...probably another 7-8 hours, hopefully knock it out next shift if the blinky lights cooperate
Probably the only one that MIGHT possibly move on is the satin/engraved UF with the Osage scales...I made it TOO pretty, so it just sits in the display case
Beautiful! Are you going to test to make sure that blood will still properly flow down the blood groove after you have engraved it?
<EDIT> Decided to ask NinJO my question in her thread...
4 (finished today) ship tomorrow
Totally freakin' AWESOME!!!!
Are you happy with this? The artist always seems to be the hardest to please.
