Saber Tooth Bayonet
This is a REAL KNIFE, hand painted and made to order.
Based off the Survivor brand bayonet.
First the old paint is sandblasted off to create better adhesion. Then I clean the surface using metal prep which also helps the paint adhere. Then a self etching primer is used that eats into the metal a little bit to get a strong bond. Then a stencil is used to create sections of different reflectivities, and then a coat of clear orange is applied. Finally the knife is finished with Imron, a durable clear finish commonly used on NASCAR. The resulting finish is as durable as they come, about as resilient as a car paint job. It will resist most small scratches. Scratching rocks, metal or other hard objects will damage the paint. As a decorative piece, the finish should last nearly forever. With heavy use, expect heavy wear. Comes with a nice holster.
