Default Rendering engraving

These are 3d renderings of knives drawn in the computer with mapped
pencil drawings on them to represent engraving. They were made with 3d studio
version 2 back in 1993. I had the idea a 3d program could be used to see what
an engraving was going to look like on a knife before engraving it. It did work
but as much time as it takes, a person could have the knife half engraved for real.

The fixed bladed knife is one I wanted to make and engrave, but I never
got started. The other one is of a Steve Hoel folder. It really did exist and the
rendering was done before the engraving.
