Destiny: Hunter Knife

Taking the 3D-printed Hunter Knife and filling, sanding and priming.

Starting two-part mold.

Here, I added an exhaust port because air-bubbles will absolutely form at the tip of that fish-cleaning hook. Yes, that's right. Destiny's Hunter Knife has a fish-cleaning hook on the back.

One half poured.
Not pictured: The the steps of boxing up the silicone and pouring the second half of the mold

First cast.

Painted, and shined up. Just need the handle wrap and they're done.

As production of Destiny continued, some things changed. I needed to change the props with them. 
Here is the final Hunter Knife prop which matches the final in-game look.


  1. Did you use paracord with the core pulled out for the grip?

    1. You're over-thinking it. It's just a shoe lace :)

    2. lol. Thanks! Shoe lace is easier and cheaper. I'm going to print the Hunter's knife this weekend. Just love the design of it.

    3. Cool! Good luck! FYI I printed the knife in two parts (split between the hole and the engraving detail), and printed each half vertically. Then I used some thin, metal rods and epoxy to glue both halves together. FDM 3D printers always print smoother vertical surfaces than horizontal ones. -In case that helps.
