Teasing Trevor

This Knifesculpture features a knife called Trevor who sits on a stainless steel rod… fixed and unmoving. Trevor is being teased by having a tempting bit of confectionary hovering a short distance in front of him.

I tried a variety of edible treats….cake…cheese and sausage and different sweets to see which one was most frustrating. After much testing I decided to use a Liquorice Allsort. My favourite one has always been the round one covered in “hundreds and thousands” Eventually this was the one I decided to use.

However the sweet is easily removed and can be replaced with other delicasies …I hope Trevor’s new owner will experiment.

I have been pondering  the idea of a Fur handle now for some time they feel so nice in the hand…however no animals were harmed in the making of this knifesculpture as the fur used is artificial.

The Blade is made from O1 tool steel……. and the base and the orange bolster is made from Corian.
