This a solid piece of some hard-core grey obsidian found tucked
way deep back in the hills. When i was making it, it started to take for in a claw shape.

When it was finished it didn't look right, i wasn't going to be able
to put it on a antler, or a staff, nothing would fit it. So wrapped that black sinew around it, and days after at a show one of my
homie g's like it, so we did a trade. That for silver work, and it turned out fine. :D

Oh man this is so sick! And stealthy looking, like a primitive commando knife!

This is insanely badass. I wish the photo were just a tiny bit more focused! It's such a mind blowing piece of work! How you handle wrapped the finger grooves. Really well done Dan!

I see. Personally, I work a polyamid flat waxed bred in deferent size, up to 1,4 mm in stead of sinew. But yes the idea is to imitate it in being stronger.

Is my translation correct?
Sinew is animal tendron?
Otherwise, that piece is very nice this way.
No handle? And so!

It's called sinew, but it's not the real actual sinew. The two have a very very different look an so on. But it's really waxed nylon cord. An na no handle fit, it came out how it did. Fit just right.

I am glad you followed the stone. It wanted to become something pretty cool!

Never really was aware of my own process. I just automatically flowed in it. That's what I do, I just start hammering away and eventually catch eye of what it's called to be an make it. :) Or break it an not make it, haha. Either way something happens. :dance:

What was it that drew you to it ?
- Was it the name?
- The angle of the shot?
- The Font ?
- The Design?
- The Color?
- Other ? :dance:

I'm loving the design of this piece. The wrapped handle is excellent, but the shape of the blade is probably the coolest part!
