Hello Everybody, thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed DK44 Designs’ gorgeous Korbanth Graflex by DK44 Designs hilt I had the privilege of presenting to you last week. Today we return to two designs I have come up with (yes two!) for another blogger I have started following and his little shallot! Now I will explain that last comment, the blog in question is titled the “The Green Onion Blog” run by the eponymous Green Onion, and his little shallot is his son! (more on him later). Green Onion had a successful career as a Chef so his blog is garnished with many culinary terms, including his weekly round-up the “Mise-En-Place”. Green Onion also has great articles such as “Top Ten List of…” and monthly run downs on interesting dates during the month like the “National Onion Rings Day” and “World Hot-Dog Day”. In a recent article Green Onion said he’d always wanted a Lightsaber (you can read the post HERE). Well what do I do? Yes I have designed a saber for Green Onion (he doesn’t know it yet, until he reads this) and I would like to present it to him now. This is Gyuto Saber…
As you can see I have tried to capture the look of a Chef’s knife with this design, and in particular one knife called a, yep, a Gyuto knife. Gyuto’s are Japanese general purpose knives that can cut, carve and cleave meats and vegetables with ease. I hope this saber is as effective. It has a Green blade (of course, what other colour could it have? 😀 ) and the blade projects from an emitter I chose to look like the steel blade of this saber’s Earthen counterpart. The switch emulates the Bolster part of the blade where the blade is then shaped to form the Tang (or spine) of the knife. The Tang runs through the handle of the knife called the Scales but this saber has a Hygienic Polymer Grip (for health and hygiene) in again G.O.B. Green! The saber is finished off with a pommel which has a sort of oriental look to it to reflect the Japanese origins of the Gyuto.
Now I mentioned earlier about Green Onion’s son. Well I had read that the youngling was having a bit of a hard time and not feeling well recently. I also missed his birthday (I’m soo Sorry!) so I have tried to make up for it by designing a saber for him. if it is ok with his father I will post this saber on Wednesday as a mid-week treat.
I am running out of time on this serving of saber delicacies, but before I do the washing up I’d like to say thank you to Green Onion for his entertaining blog (Oh and I forgot to mention please go have a look at it by clicking HERE ). I also want to thank you, my followers and viewers for your continued support, it means so much to me. Hopefully I will get permission from Green Onion to share my next design for his son, so please join me for that (and don’t worry I have a contingency plan in place just in case!) Till next time!
