Thread: First Build Completed: Grey Relic

  1. #1

    Default First Build Completed: Grey Relic

    Here is my first build, and I call it Grey Relic.

    MHS Hilt

    The blade is a mix of Amber and Red/Orange CREE with a Green FOC die that makes the FOC yellow.

    I did the weathering and shatter pattern myself using a dremel engraver bit, then hit everything with heavy aluminum black. I removed most of the AB after it dried. The brass was aged with ammonia fumes. I like the adding of the brass bits a lot, and I'm glad I sprung for them.

    I have a 34" Corbin blade for it, and I have a 32" unstable blade from Ripper Blades on order.

    Getting all the wiring in there was not pretty, but it all fit and she's functional. The bass speaker works very well with the dark meat font, and adds a nice rumble.

    Huge thanks to everyone who answered questions and posted tutorials!!!

    Very nicely done. The scarring is sweet and really makes the entire piece.
