AJMX, Mark VI by DaveLuck AJMX, Mark VI by DaveLuck
The last rendering I made had a Confederate Flag on it, so I I decided to make the background for this one a Canadian Flag, instead!

This is the Mark VI, which has been redesigned to have a true Bowie shaped blade with a reverse taper, a thumb guard spaced further down the blade to allow for holding the blade in a modified saber grip, a true convex grind, and a true recurve blade, while retaining the same handle shape of the older versions that terminates in a flat halligan bar and is extra-long to accommodate another hand.

The knife has an extremely substantial weight of a little over two and a half pounds for extra cutting power, but the balance of the blade along its axis has been improved over the older versions, making it less likely to slip or twist during a heavy cut.

Sadly, not for a long time, although if they ever do, I'll remember the people who asked!

Reflections look to fake, they need more texture or roughness to them/blur. Handle looks like it's made of plastic.

I actually don't really care about the texturing of the rendering aside from antialiasing so long as I can see the rest of the features on the part correctly; NX7 and Inventor don't really have that many sophisticated options for high-quality renderings. What I do prioritize are the dimensions and the profile, especially of the cutting edge, but I do not release the engineering drawings (aside from a few simple dimensions), manufacturing information, or heat treatment information for any of these knives.

Material selection for the AJMX series knives has changed a couple times throughout the entire process - first I wanted to use glass-filled Dupont Zytel Nylon, which I changed to EMS Grivory GVX-7H Polypthalamide because of the problems with glass-reinforced plastic, and I changed it to linen-impregnated West System LM-105 thermosetting epoxy in the last iteration, which cuts costs for a smaller production run because I would not have to manufacture molds for it, and the composite would be much tougher anyways. For a larger run the trend is reversed, but I don't intend to sell many of these knives, if at all. Because Norplex trademarks the term, I have to refer to it as "linen-impregnanted West LM-105 thermosetting epoxy" and not "Micarta."
