2020-04-02 (Th) Electro Knife for Simulated Combat EleKSCo

Last time I was at the hackspace, I tested my award design on scrap plastic, but this time I brought my own. When I cut the plastic and peeled off the protective layer, I was pleased to see how clean everything looked.

I made a second stand that said, "Electric weapon champion," which will be presented to whoever wins the exhibition match with their homemade weapon. I have a second plastic knife for this award.

I also sketched a whimsical life-size knife for acrylic laser cutting, and this will be awarded to the runner-up in the knife fights. I cut two of these, but the first one broke while I was drying it. I may have to mount it to something for support.

In the empty spaces, I made miniature versions of the big knife, but they didn't have a pattern on the handle or a hole in the blade. The text was large enough to read. These are shorter than a typical writing pen, and hopefully, they are thick enough to withstand some handling. I plan to hand them out to any participant who wants one.
