I used very simple tools, cut the rough shapes out with a hack saw, then shaped them with files and a grinder. I did the polishing with those fingernail polishing pads that have 3 grades of sandpaper on them. the rest is just epoxy putty, wood, leather, string, whatever would work lots of hours sanding and lots of cut and poked fingers
Thanks Evan, I've been watching your page for years... I just love your work, some of the best sculpting i've seen I love to get in there and make actually stuff... and if you're making a little sword, it should still work right?
Wow, those look awesome. The combination bow-and-sword one is really interesting, and it makes me wonder if that'd work on a real, full-scale weapon. I also love the other sword, and the leaf is a nice touch to it. The axe leaves me a bit confused, though. It looks cool, but the large cut-outs in the blades seems counterproductive.
Blunderbuss barrel? I don't see a blunderbuss barrel. O.o As for the axe, I'm sure it would still be fairly heavy if it was built large enough, but what I mean is that it's not very efficient. With all that empty space and such a long handle, it looks like the balance would be thrown off. It also looks like that would compromise a great deal of its strength. I mean no offense, of course. I just usually observe and study weapons with efficiency of design in mind.
Ah, I found it, thanks. I didn't notice the blunderbuss part of it, at first. Yeah, I can definitely imagine it being pretty heavy, but maybe not as heavy as the axe in this picture (if it were built to full scale, that is) The extra length of the grip seems like it'd add more weight than the blunderbuss's barrel, but it might be pretty close, considering there's also a ball flail attached to the other end of the one with the blunderbuss. I gotta admit, it's not very often that I see something that's three weapons in one. XD
