A prop 'M-tec' knife I made.
« on: February 04, 2011, 06:08:08 PM »

Cut and sanded Plexiglas painted over with a black Para-cord wrap.




And now compared to the knife I based it off of.




It's for my Fallout cosplay. So, does it look like a 200 year old weathered version of a combat knife? Or did I fall short of my goal?

might want to add some cross-hatch looking scratches and rust spots to make it look used otherwise, looks really good.

Stainless steel doesn't rust.

from TheRustStore.com:
Stainless steel can develop rust. It is much less likely to rust but it can still rust. Leaving a wet cast iron skillet in a stainless sink and you'll see a rusted ring in your sink. The stainless didn't rust but the pan stained the surface and it will not be easy to remove

It is also possible for stainless steel to corrode (rust). There are over 150 grades of stainless steel and some are more prone to corrosion than others. Generally, the higher the chromium content, the less likely the steel will rust

It's beautifully done, my only complaint would be that it doesn't have the square tip on the end of the blade.
But that's where my obsession to detail comes in.

Considering it was a second attempt at making it using plexiglas can I get a pass on that detail?

Most people who own or use those tend to keep them in working order and clean.

Hard to keep it clean and spotless when fighting aliens and monsters (Half life HECU cosplay) or mutant monsters 200 years post apocolyptia (fallout wastelander cosplay)




I have sad news the knife itself snapped in two during a game of Ninja, due to me forgetting to drop the prop with my hat and prop rifle. I will be attempting a fix.. failing that I will make a new one. Though the broke on can be used for scenarios that require a broken knife like it had been cut through the blade just below where the cutting edge starts.


I also had two more that I made, but I don't have pics to show them off with because I sold them without thinking of getting photos. Trying to get the guy who bought them to send me a few snapshots/customer action shots.
