About this Prop
Construction Details:
I took a scan of the game manual art, enlarged it, and traced over it to get the exact proportions. EASY. The knife blade itself is foam board sandwiched in-between two layers of craft foam that are cut slightly smaller. I did it this way, so when I filled in the edges with lightweight stone clay it would give it a serrated edge look... or that was the plan, anyway. LOL The handle has two pieces of 6mm craft foam for thickness, and the knife measures 16" in total length.

NOTE: The props are painted in everyone's respective Handsome Men color scheme to be more con friendly, buuut since "dead" isn't a color, I asked will [ishida] for his two cents and he suggested a dark mustard/maroon color scheme.
Personal Thoughts:
I affectionately call this the "bitch cutting knife" because JUST LOOK AT THE DAMN THING. 8D I wanted to make Kevin's small throwing knives too, but I've kinda run myself into the ground doing most of the sewing and prop work for this group so it will have to wait until later.
