This is a REAL KNIFE hand painted by me, made to order.
Why stick to a Ganzo?
- MUCH Cheaper
- If you just want a nice display piece
Why upgrade to a Benchmade?
- Benchmade knives are THE BEST knives on the market
- More accurate
- Much higher material quality
First I sandblast the old paint off, to create better adhesion. Then I clean the surface 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. Black paint is applied, and purple through a stencil, then the freehand graffiti gets detailed. 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.
