Klingon Weapon Set
A Veteran who loves Star Trek wanted a replica Klingon weapon display. This was friggin awesome to make!
Some models I made of the Mek'leth
The plate of steel that I would carve the mek'leth from.
I used Aluminum bars to hand shape guides for the plasma cutter.
The final guide shape is finished and clamped to a rough sketch of the blade.
A hand bent steel rod was used for yet another cut.
The blade finally cut out before shapping.
The Mek'leth shaped, polished and ready to be finished.
The background for the Klingon symbol cut out with the first weld hole drilled in the center.
The decorative blades cut for the symbol.
The symbol after a rough finishing and all welded together.
Getting the first cut on the Klingon dagger cut.
The curved edge and blade cut and placed together to get an idea of the shape final shape.
The welded dagger being ground into the proper shape.
The dagger polished to about 400 grit and ready for finishing.
The final set finished, with a light acid etching in the daggers blade.
Making the delivery. Don't mess with a Vet playing with replica weaponry lol.
