I made these custom prop knives for a thing I'm filming next month. Still got a whole costume to make but ugh, it takes like a day to make a decent costume. And I don't like rushing things.
Anyway. The reason for making two of these knives is that the clean one will be used before 'stabbing' and the bloody one will be used after 'stabbing'. Having two separate objects allows me to re-shoot stuff without having the clean the prop over and over. So the stabbing shot will be different to the knife removal shot. MOVIE MAGIC!
The knives are also retractable so they won't harm anything or anyone.
It took me around 3 hours to make them both. Didn't expect it to take so long but what can ya do
I'm very happy with how they turned out.
