Texas History Knife video progression - 09/14/20 04:02 PM

I've been working on a couple of Texas history pieces. This is the smaller one. Knife is 1836 layer Damascus and includes nails from the house where the Mexicans met after the battle of San Jacinto. The handle has wood from the Sam Houston Oak, and brass domed pins from a harness decoration from the Sea of Mud excavation. The knife is styled after James Black's coffin handles, such as the knife found in the Sea of Mud.

I put the finishing touches on this one last night, but finished after dark. Here's a short look at the handle roughed in before a few finish coats. Hope to shoot some clean finished video tonight.

Here's the final video reveal. This video is a bit longer, as I take the time to explain all the various thematic, historic, and symbolic elements in this piece. There's also a nice cameo/photobomb by my twins at the end.
