Pinto Punk

This knife is a Punk. A loud spotty punk sporting his anti social refinery with pride. Waving two fingers at convention with the well preened scary confidence that only a punk can muster…Screw you !

But fear not……this Pinto Punk has been captured and just hangs there, harmless. Hopelessly suspended and controlled …counter weighted and unable to move.

The Mohican haircut, the studs, the rings, the chains and piercings in the blade all neutered… attitude tamed. Frozen in time.

The slotted blade is O1 steel with a scandi grind . The handle is Corian with decorative inserts made from sandwiched Corian and pewter and ebony veneer. Mohican hair made from nylon strands. Various body jewellery in surgical stainless steel is used in the blade .

The solid silver chain was distressed in my compost heap for a week. The hexagonal stainless steel uprights were left with their natural unpolished patina. Yellow monofilament is used throughout. The Corian base measures 24cm x 12cm and the piece is 17cm tall.
