The Interrogator pictured above is now available for auction. This auction is exclusive to The OG. There is no reserve price. This is a 24HR auction, ending tomorrow 6 May 2017 at 12PM EST.
AUCTION IS CLOSED. HOLISEXXX IS OUR WINNER AT 900USD.
This knife is repurposed from a decommissioned A10 Warthog Gau 8 Avenger barrel. It is entirely hand forged with care to leave the rifling from the barrel intact. It has been differentially heat treated to 56 RC on the edge. Satin finished saber grind with a thick spine and dramatic tapers in both directions. It will produce an absolutely devastating wound channel in a stabbing capacity. That's actually what I kept calling it during the process of making it in my head was 'the wound channel'. Figured it ought to do plenty of excess damage just like the gun.
The handle is a rich dark Mahogany reclaimed from Bill "The Butcher" Cutting's Old Fulton Ferry with my full contouring, and brass hardware all with my full rustic finish.
This knife is a functional and unique combination of history. It's rare that I find myself comfortable with the idea of my work sitting in a case somewhere, but these are a certain exception. This particular knife will be the only made of its kind, so the winner is going to have something quite rare in their hands. This is something one of my hardcore collectors will refinance his home to buy on the secondary market after I die... *cough*outtapped*cough*
Bonus points if you teach someone to speak English with the knife.
