This is a REAL KNIFE Hand painted by me, made to order. Based off the Elk Ridge Gut knife.
First I Sandblast the old paint off, to create better adhesion.The Wooden handle was removed and painted, 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 the blade black, and the handle purple.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
