October 3d Modeling Challenge

Recommended Posts

I think that you and I are the only ones with hollow ground blades.

 

Muggs

 

Actually the render I posted is just a flat profile on the blade. I had it setup at first with a curved profile. With the curved profile I found that it made it harder to control the geometry of the different cut out sections of the blade. So I settled on the flat profile to make it easier. I guess I don't know alot about diving knifes but I would think a hollow ground blade may be a little brittle for the kind of abuse these knifes are designed to stand up to.

Knit and Solidify. The blade is ok like that (this is not for production, only for presentation)

Knit surfaces and Mirror. The same method from Joeschmoe
