This is a REAL KNIFE Hand painted by me, made to order. Based off the Elk Ridge Gut knife.
There are no pics yet, so the product images are other galaxy series knives.
First I Sandblast the old paint off, to create better adhesion.The Wooden handle was removed and painted white, then clear coated. Then I clean the surface of the blade using metal prep. This also helps the paint adhere. Then I use a self etching primer that eats into the metal a little bit to get a strong bond. Then I spray paint a few coats of black paint, and then use an airbrush to paint a space scene. The Knife is then clear-coated 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.
The Gut knife is decently small. only 8 inches total. Does Come with the holster pictured
