russian steampunk sculptor bob basset has made possibly one of the most original knives in existence. It's extremely hard, but quite thick to avoid being too brittle.



I just hope nobody actually is crazy enough to poke a hole in the skin of a aircraft with this thing.

another creation is this "dragon leather" briefcase

Damn, but that briefcase is gorgeous. I wonder if he does commissions?

He sells the pieces through ebay, so yeah probably.

Another idea - I wonder if there's enough demand for dragon leather to mass produce it?

instead of hand embossing, the texture could be made with a large heated metal plate that bears the texture which you stamp into the leather all at once. Sort of like a drop forging process.

assembly of all kinds of dragon leather products would be quite quick after that.
