Greetings programs!

I am a longtime lurker and occasional poster who is now jumping into the fray to share my latest project. A crysknife inspired by the David Lynch version of Dune. It's not especially screen-accurate. I took some liberties with the shape, giving it a slight bend at the base of the handle.

Sculpted in Zbrush and printed by Shapeways in their basic plastic material, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It does feel pretty fragile. I almost snapped it on the ceiling fan doing my best Muadib, "Long live the fighters!" Anyway, I would be grateful for comments and crits. Thanks y'all!

Thanks y'all! I do actually plan on finishing it. What I might do is cast it as is in a more robust material (the print is a little fragile) and then tool it up and then paint it.

Thanks for the comments y'all!

I was about to recommend you cast it if you could. With the remake in the works you might be able to do a run for anyone interested.

Thanks... This is all a learning process--casting will be a challenge. I'll post progress shots. I wonder what the protocol would be in making the .stl file available to folks?? Would that be okay?

I honestly have never posted stl files in a public forum before, so I wouldn't know how to go about that particular process.
