Arcanepunk: Invocator's Knife by TormentedArtifacts Arcanepunk: Invocator's Knife by TormentedArtifacts
"Many of you novices may be wondering why we issue the knife to all trainees. Your knife is a tool as much as it is a weapon- whit it, you will draw forth what is needed to perform the basic duties of an Invocator. Summoning, Binding, Banishing, the use of a tool such as this is integral to all of them. The bone and brass blade can be used to channel energy just as easily as it can be used to draw your own blood to create a summoning. The synchronizer on the pommel has been adapted to work with any number of devices, including the interfaces of the airships you will one day help to pilot. And the edge?

"The edge will cut. And you'll be using it on yourselves. As Invocators, you already know this- no power comes without a price. And the price, will always be paid out in one currency- your life. Drop by precious drop. That's what we sell in return for our power."


-Excerpt from a Royal Academy training speech.


Media:
Blade: Bone (Unsharpened. Give me a break- it's a prop dagger!)
Handle: Layered bamboo and plaster
Pommel: Unknown widget

This piece is available for private sale.

I do. There's Tormented Artifacts, which carries most of my stuff: [link]

Or if you're interested in one of my one-of-a-kind pieces, just send me a not through DA, or an email through the site.

Hm. Well, I believe all three of those originals sold ages ago, unfortunately. I've got a variant of the Mad Scientst still available, which is this piece right here: [link]

It's actually only 35, since I'm trying to lighten up on stock at this point, and I'm not going to be doing plasterworks any longer. PLus an extra 5 to cover shipping, so only forty in total.

I think we've thoroughly established that I love this piece, but the little speech bubble coming from your icon is insisting I leave a comment.
