Bright Water Gut
This is a REAL KNIFE Hand painted by me, made to order. Based off the Elk Ridge Gut knife.
The old coating is sandblasted off to create better adhesion. Then the surface is cleaned 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 paint different sections of color. The handles are painted light blue. The Knife is then clear-coated with Cerekote, a durable clear finish commonly used on Guns. 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
