Rhino Hunter

I call this knife the "Rhino Hunter". Not that I actually support the idea of killing rhinoceroses. When I was making these knives I was intentionally trying to make them overly intimidating in a subtle and simplistic way. The heavy over sized blade on this knife makes it look like something you wouldn't want to mess with to much.   
Rhino Hunter, Daniel Icaza, 2010, Pattern Welded Steel (Damascus Steel), 
I was thinking of myself as some sort of prop designer making weapons for imaginary character's in crazy imaginary settings.

Maybe some day I will get to play around with these ideas some more.
But for now I have had to put any ideas about blacksmithing on hold.

Be back again soon with more.
Until next time.
Peace and Love


  1. Hi great blog! Does running a blog such as this
    require a great deal of work? I've virtually no understanding of coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask. Kudos!

    1. Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a comment.
      Maintaining a blog can be a lot of work but it´s all up to you and how you want to run your blog.
      Some people post multiple times a day other post once a month. It´s all up to you.
      As far as coding is concerned I am no expert, but if a question arises the answer can usually be found online, there are a lot of great coding websites.
      Most blog platforms also have a very user friendly interface that requires no coding at all.
      After looking at your article on how to sharpen a knife I think your off to a great start.
      If you ever have any questions feel free to contact me.
