We did some research on how to extend the lifecycle of a knife. It turned out a knife has to be sharp for lifelong use. To keep a knife sharp, you have to sharpen it. Since the blade gets a fraction smaller after every sharpening process, we decided to make Wigbold’s blade bigger.
We definitely wanted to add our Blackbeard signature to the knife: our honeycomb framework serves as an anti-slip grip of the knife.
Together with our pirate crowd, we have created these final prototypes, but when going into production there are always details that can be adapted, for example: the exact placing and pattern of the honeycombs on the grip. By now, we take pride in not only going great lengths to attend to the tiniest details, but also inviting our crowd to stay informed through our updates and provide us with feedback and suggestions through the comments and our surveys.
