Out the Side Full Metal Xiphoid - Complete

video Out the Side Full Metal Xiphoid - Complete
Alas, my project is finally completed. Took about a month to do.
Firstly I thank Sinza and his awesome forum. Thank you.
Made of steel, aluminum, and a copper wire. Very cool to use. Completely my own design. I didn't even try borrowing ideas from other sources. I did realized after I build this gauntlet that it has some concepts in it used during the Middle Ages. I'm finally catching up with the times.
I won't make a tutorial, so don't ask. But if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'll try to respond.
Rate, comment subscribe. I'll be building some personal armor built later.

Very, very cool. I assume concealing it would be impossible, though?

You would be correct.

Very nice, but this would really suck for people like me who have double jointed elbows : )

I personally say functionally/aesthetically you should reverse the angle on the blade tip, the point should be on the arm side of the blade when extended as not to snag and plus it would look damn nice XD

that's soooo awesome
you could make another uniqe design for the other hand since you are making armor or maybe blades on armor's boots
Kaiven (author)  Kikot3 years ago
I've always wanted to try boots. I might make a completely different design for the other arm though, I have some ideas.

Thanks! :D
would it be safer/ better if the blade were facing out? You get more power with a down stroke and its not so close to the hands + when closed the blade in facing inside so you wont cut something when you dont want to
Kaiven (author)  plasticpopcorn44 years ago
No, actually, unless I made the blade shorter. There is a one inch gap or so between the edge and the handle, so my hand shouldn't get cut. When closed, the blade would be facing the gauntlet. That means everytime I close the blade, it would get nicked, and there would be a higher possibility of me cutting my side. I prefer the dull side of the blade near my vital organs.
Also, if the blade was facing inward, I wouldn't be able to slice things with blade collapsed.
ah ic... always gotta be ready for them ninjas eh

Peace, brother, be kind...

Anyway, good design and good construction.
Kaiven (author)  rimar20004 years ago
These designs are for fun, not for fighting. Don't worry, I make these only because I am interested in the design concepts.
Yes, it is all well, man. I love jokes.

Your going to hurt yourself man.
Kaiven (author)  Turpis4 years ago
Amazingly enough, I have not hurt myself at all since I have started making knives. I paper cut myself with cardboard though.
