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 the metal is polished. Then the surface is cleaned using metal prep which also helps the paint adhere. Then the blade is marbled to create a faux Damascus finish.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. Comes with a plastic sheath.
