Wasteland Knife.

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Wasteland Knife.

Post by neg » Sat Aug 29, 2015 6:05 pm

The post-apocalyptic genre is one of my favorites. This isn't meant to be a 'pretty' knife, it's meant to look like it came out of Mad Max, Fallout, or Book of Eli. Hand forged from an old leaf spring (5160), I added an elkhorn handle, died black with bits of copper. The rear bolster is made from diamond plate, to keep it looking like it was made from scavenged materials (well, technically, I guess it was). There was a hole in the center of it where the leaf springs were put together, I decided to rivet a piece of mild steel in there to fill the hole. Hardened in vegetable oil and tempered to a straw yellow. :)

That would make anybody run away if you pulled it on them!

That's so many levels of crazy. :) On a side note playing Wasteland II today and just made it to California.
