Great Knife - Details by Wraith-Flametail Great Knife - Details by Wraith-Flametail
Image 2 of 2 of my version of The Great Knife, Pyramid Head's decidedly signature weapon in Silent Hill 2.

My remake is designed more like a chef's knife-- that is, the grip is far closer towards the spine of the blade, whereas the orginal Great Knife had a grip almost in line with the edge.

Here is a top-down view of the knife with little details I'd like to show off.

First, in the lower left, is a detail of the guard area, where I used two 1/8" steel plates to thicken the grip and reinforce the tang, god forbid I actually need to hit something with it.

The other two views in the top-right show a teensy bit of the blood I poured on this thing. This thing has opened my skin a lot in being made, too.

For anyone that wants to know, yes, I did do some forging on it to get it to shape.

Once again, 4'6" overall, 30 lbs., steel, sweat, blood.

Yes, it's real. :) It says in the description that it's solid steel and weighs 30 lbs.

grips are pretty easy in principle, but deciding on which style to use and what material to make them from can be a little daunting.

Oh my god... If I had the resources, I would remake this just so that I can make badass poses with it! It would also be a good bit of exercise gear, since I imagine you would be exhausted after swinging this only like, 5 times. One things for sure, you don't have to be a silent hill fan to appreciate this!

Easily. The same way you would if you were to donate blood, except with a syringe rather than an IV tube. Insert a hypodermic needle directly into an easily accessible vein and give the plunger a pull.

Repeat as necessary.
