This piece was a test for the company to print out and mold an asset that would potentially become an functional butter knife for the tourist market. In the end, the dealer that commissioned this test didn't end up going with this method of production and the job was done.
I did finally get around to Rendering this thing out to show what it could have been if the client gave the 3D print method the green light to go for it.
Rendered in Keyshot, modeled in Softimage/Maya combo and textured in Photoshop.
Here is a screen of the wire frame of the knife.
And here is the final 3D printed knife, done in a resin. It Measured about 7 inches in length (I dont remember the exact specific dimensions of all the components).
