As of now I have a minimalist, rust decay aesthetic for my knife. I want the handles hollowed out to be seen through and make it light weight. The rust/decay look will come from anodizing the metal.
I would like to capture these colors but not the rust.
Here are a few sketches of how I might want to design my knife:
3 Different aesthetics I never considered for my project are:
Making a completely wooden knife would look really cool but would have no real function.
– Art Deco:
The flashy gold is definitely not the norm for knives.
– Radical Design:
The curved handles seem hard to create and might not cover the blade well.
I hadn’t considered these aesthetics before but they have helped me think of some new ideas to incorporate into my project.
