Izaya's Knife by ArchonicZen Izaya's Knife by ArchonicZen
Prop for GF's other costume, Izaya, from Durarara. the general shape and folding mechanism is based on a random knife I had that was like it. However, I had to add in a few extra curves and a hole in the blade. I then used the original hand grip from the base knife.

The blade itself is made of plastic and painted to look metallic so that it is convention safe.

Yup, fake and con legal.

1st, I found an existing Real knife and traced out the shapes. (blade and handle) You might want to size down the handle a bit to leave room for it to fit inside the grip. If the knife doesn't have a hole in the blade, just add one lol.

2nd, I traced those shapes on to some thin but sturdy plastic. (Obtained from a plastic storage box)
-2 identical pieces for the blade, glued together.
-2 identical pieced for the handle, one on ether side of the blade.

3rd, I drilled a hole in the plastic blade and both handle pieces and riveted them together. That makes the folding mechanism.

4th, I used metallic gray spray paint on the blade, followed by a good layer of spray gloss.

5th, I used the original knifes rubber handle, but you could just glue a few layers of funfoam (craft foam), and paint on a few coats of plasti-dip (available at Lows and on the internet) and your done!

Hope that helps!

Feel free to ask away if you have any more questions. =]

You do know that Izaya uses a Spyderco Centofante 4, right?
If you can part with 50-60 usd you can buy the real thing! :)

Actually it's a Centofante 3, I think. Their great knives, but they won't let you even take pocket knives into cons, which sucks.
