Got this for my husband a few years ago.



These aren't knives, but they are our Damascus steel wedding set.

You can always make a female mold in silicone or other rubber media in order to produce replicas of your original wax carving.

I'm concerned there are too many overhangs to make that work - but I could be wrong. The feathers have space under them, and that beak's passage would be difficult to deal with... but I may give it a try.

What is the knife in the background of this pic? I was given one just like it, even have the exact same sheath, but I have no way to identify either it or its job.

That'd be a Russell belt knife by Grohman knives of Pictou Nova Scotia Canada

or maybe on of many copies.

1970's rigid (usa) knife needs some love - inmate maybe?

back in the mid-seventies while living on the border of san fransisco's tenderloin district, i felt the need for a "partner". found a custom knife maker, sent them the outline of my hand and $42 and some time later a pretty solid knife arrived. a great knife, fits perfectly, handle/pins still tight.

made by the Rigid Company (usa). a little googling revealed that the company founders had ties to Buck knives. anyhow ............

daily carry for years, camping duty, yadda. figured i might tackle the bolster and handle refinishing, but need a pro to address the blade with a re-grind and polish.

anyone here care to give it a go?

While it may be too late for the project you were doing you could have made a rubber mold of that unless there was a lot of hidden detail in your pic.I made molds like that for the furniture industry primarily but we also did figurines and lamps that had that kind of detail for production.
