Pattern for Dagger
Posted: Fri Apr 19, 2013 8:29 pm
I finished the split pattern for a dagger I'll cast May 11. It's based on a 1500 BC dagger from what's now Iran. Before I carved it, I drilled a couple of holes for registration pegs then cut it lengthwise with a bandsaw. This will allow me to ram up the sand mold over both sides and get good detail. If I can I'd like to make three molds of this for this pour.
