Theater Made Knife


Recommended Posts

One of the nicer ones out there. Stacked brass and plexiglass washers and some other material (seems almost like wood but it has a really fine wavy design into it). Blade looks to have come from a sword of some kind, seeing how it has most of the mirror finish and the beveling like that of a sword. All held tightly together by a brass nut. Came in the sheath that I had posted earlier today.

The "wavy" material you refer to used in the handle appears to be micarta. Its been around since 1910 first used by Westinghouse for electrical purposes. It consists of layers of fine linen in thermoplastic setting/resin, although other materials such as paper, carbon fiber, canvas and fiberglass have been used. It is favored in the knife making industry for use as handle scales. Extremely strong it is also impervious to liquids such as blood and water thus being resistant to warpage and shrinkage. When it is shaped it will have the appearance of wood grain. Left unpolished it provides a good slip resistant surface.
