Fantasy knifes and daggers by Astalo Fantasy knifes and daggers by Astalo
I made a lot of different fantasy/sci-fi style weapons in the late nineties and they were a quite poor shape in nowadays, so i take them to my workshop and use few months in last winter and spring for making them look much better.

Two shiny knifes in the bottom picture are only repolished, but i made totally new handles/guards to rest of them. (First there was just some simple steel tubes welded to the blade and now my knifes look more traditional.) Lenght of that "shortsword" with blade holes is about 51 cm.

Good choice. It's also my own favourite with that mini sword.

So how long does it take to make something like that

Maybe about 2-3 days for one knife.

what types of metal do you use?
Reply
:iconastalo:
Astalo Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Mainly some parts from old broken farmyard machinery and hand tools. (I use also some spring steel parts quite often..)
For example that curvy dagger is forged from old billhook blade.

What would you charge for a blade like the one, bottom left corner, Smaller one?

Very hard to tell.. Weapons are more like a personal hobby and most of my commission works are more normal things like door knockers and candle holders etc.
I don't really even make business to outside my local area. (Finland)

That knife is so simple, that probably every blacksmith can make it, if you show the picture to them. :)

The dagger with holses in it looks like something from Nausicaa, very cool.

Thanks. I like that manga/anime very much, but idea came really from Tim Powers "Dinner at Deviant's Palace" book.

I read it over 10 year ago and i remember that there was some weapons with blade holes and they make some strange humming sound when you swing the blade etc.

Hienolta näyttää. Pidän erityisesti tuosta reikäteräisestä miekasta ja kaarevan tikarin kahvan päässä olevasta raskaasta piikistä.

Astalo Featured By Owner May 13, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
Hauska kuulla.. Teen luultavasti joskus myöhemmin myös yhden hieman enemmän historiallisia malleja muistuttavan tikarin, missä on vastaavanlainen piikkipommeli. (Mahdollisesti joku variaatio Main Gauchesta tms.)
