Just wanted to show off a quick bash I did over the weekend. It's based off an RPG character I'm developing. I was inspired to do the kukri after watching the last few episodes of Game of Thrones Season 2. The coolest character in my opinion is Bronn, a sellsword who sells his skills to the highest bidder. In the show, he wields a kukri as a secondary weapon, and I decided to make one of my own. I traced and cut the basic shape out of plastic from a broken cd case. i then filed and sanded it down to the desired shape and sharpened it using a piece of fine sandpaper. After several layers of silver paint and sealants, I wrapped the handle in black thread. I was really surprised with how well it turned out. I plan on doing a few more in the future. LMK what you think!

My hope is that he can fit into any fantasy-type setting, be it Tolkien, GRRM, D&D, or (Especially) The Elder Scrolls. I tried to make his outfit fairly generic and utilitarian. He's a treasure hunter by trade and frequently investigates long-sealed tombs and crypts in search of lost treasures and artifacts. Think Indiana Jones with a sword. I'm beginning to jot down some ideas for a short story and possible novel. I like the idea of a human traveling with a large brutish Orc companion. Think Han Solo and Chewbacca with swords. Whether or not my story idea makes it onto paper is one thing, but at least the figure is done!
Hope you guys enjoy! LMK if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions!
