axe mask


So here’s that hawk mask that I recently finished off , its a basic friction fit sheath .

Made from 4.5 mm wet formed veg tan leather which was then distressed on the workshop floor .

 Old copper was then shaped and hammered into place , then drilled and  riveted with copper saddlery rivets before being aged with brass black .

 The leather was then double dyed dark brown and then light for an aged effect before being rubbed back with wire wool for a scuffed effect.

So in my dream last night I ended up at this lake house with 9 others. A friend pulled up to show us his motorcycle. Someone asked him if he knew the name of the lake and he said it was Crystal lake. I had a sudden realization and just brushed it off. Later two of the people I was with, they were brother and sister, were being made fun of by the rest of the group. Then it turned violent. Next thing I know this motherfucker right here^^^ shows up. They don’t call him Jason they call him fucking GRANDDADDY SLASHER! He was slashing those guys up good too.


GB SFA Kydex mask .

 Its been awhile since I made up kydex masks for some smaller Gransfors Brucks belt hatchets  but wanted to make up a prototype version for my own small forest axe as well .

This Proto version has x3 points of retention , the first  the kydex mold itself , secondry retention comes in the form of a self tightening screw allowing the user to set the required retention and 3rd in the form of a Mil-spec shock cord loop with ITW Nexus hardware.

 I plan to make a few more versions of these including a full survivor model and will probavbly make a leather version in the same style for those anti -plastic kydex haters out there .

Custom Axe mask .

So here’s that carbon fiber pattern Holstex a thermoplastic similar to kydex axe mask that I recently made for a customer .

 There are 3 levels to the sheaths retention, first the close molding of the Holstex , second is the Mil-spec shock cord and cord-lock and 3rd a simple kydex hardware screw & post which allows the user to set the amount of retention / ease of draw .

This panel pleased me!! Mainly because it fleshed out the Heart Pirates, who are fan favorites and who will serve a big role in the plot, but are otherwise underdeveloped.

What We Can Glean So Far, Beyond the Immediately Obvious that We Already Knew from Previous Arcs:

1. They’re a squad, through and through. They’re not only loyal to their captain, but they’re also loyal to each other, and will fight and die for any one of them. Remember, these guys are facing ONE OF KAIDO’S MOST POWERFUL FIGHTERS, and that’s no joke. Most people, hell, most pirates, would be running away screaming. Not them, though–because they need to help Bepo, their cremate and friend.

2. If we assume that every member of the crew is within this panel–sans Law, of course–then Law approximately has 12 members in his crew.

3. After the events of Sabaody, Jean Bart became genuine friends with the Heart Pirates. He used to be a famous pirate captain before he was enslaved, so that suggests that he has a massive amounts of wounded pride, but he nonetheless wears the uniform and is right alongside his other crewmates in assisting Bepo.

4. Shachi has guts. Because Shachi nearly passed out from Rayleigh’s haki–and was pretty much the only major crew member of any of the crews to come that close to fainting–many in the fandom portrayed him, in comparison to Penguin and Bepo, who are frequently portrayed as the most capable and fearless fighters in the crew after Law, as weak and comparatively cowardly. Looks like that isn’t the case, though. He might not have a lot of willpower, but he does have a lot of guts, and he’s willing to face off one of the Four Emperor’s subordinates in order to help his friend. 

5. It appears that most of the crew fights with bladed weapons. Including Penguin and Shachi, which is interesting since it appeared like the anime and most of the fandom assumed that they were mainly martial artists with propensities towards incorporating diverse sets of weaponry in their fighting. (I kind of hope they still are–seeing a “jack of all trades, master of none” kind of fighting style in OP, where some of the characters use weapons ranging from knives to guns, would be pretty interesting, actually)

6. Not really something new, but. That guy in the bottom right with the ax and awesome mask. Who is he. He looks awesome. I want to know more about him
