I Forge Iron

Aggression: Zombie Outbreak Response Blade


Recommended Posts

This one and its two brothers that are in the works are inspired by, but not copies of, the big knife wielded by Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 5. The knife is forged from 1 1/2" x 1/4" 1084 plain high carbon steel, triple normalized, single quenched in canola oil, and triple tempered. The overall length is 18 3/4", with a blade length of 12 3/8". The clip is fully sharpened and will shave hair. The handle wrap is neon orange paracord for the underlay, black paracord for the overlay, and black for the triple strand Turk's head knot, all impregnated with Minwax Wood Hardener. The sheath is Kydex with two MOLLE locks.



I took a picture of it in hand, but I think even this doesn't really convey just how big this thing looks in real life. I don't name most of my blades, but this one demanded it be called Aggression. And I didn't feel like I should argue with it. :D

Thank y'all!

Kwisatz - Other than just generally using my blades around, I test big blades on brush; I want it to be able to slice easily through thin, whippy branches, yet still chop the big stuff well.

As for weight, it's a bit heavy, though not bad at all. I'll try and remember to weigh it next time I'm in the shop, but no guarantees.

All right, I finally remembered to weigh it. It is 18.87 ounces, and the point of balance is one inch in front of the choil, even with the edge of the touchmark that's closest to the point.

I also did a little experiment, and it initially looks like shaving hair takes a sharper edge than slicing an average sheet of paper. I'm not sure about such things as slicing through a phone book sheet that's rolled into a tube, which is one of Tai Goo's party tricks.
