Ice Daggers

Post by grendel on Sun Oct 14, 2012 6:39 pm

A little idea I've been plotting for a while now.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

- you could commit the perfect crime with that - no trace of the weapon, - how did you stop it melting when knapping?

Whoops a bit misleading my original post, should explain, Ice Daggers is just the name, they're made of glass.

Is the handle glass, or a clear plastic? Also, that looks like clear fishing line you've used to tie it together.

Tell us more.

Not quite an ice dagger but an icicle letter opener! This was a Christmas present to my father. It has a carved soapstone handle drilled out for the knapped clear glass blade. The binding is cotton thread with brushed on thinned P.V.A. to cover the join.

Only just saw this question.

The blades are made from magnifying glasses, the handle polymer and the string transparent rubber.

Wombled! It was a crappy carving from a charity shop! A good source of cheap soapstone.

Did you reshape it or polish it yourself? There seems to be plenty of soapstone blanks around very cheap, if they're polishable.
