This one has my blood on it- literally. This started out as a 6 foot by 8 foot sheet of ....sheet metal. To cut it I had to jump with my whole body on this huge foot pedal, over and over and over and over and over and over again. Got very tired. Then I had hundreds of these really long swords- kind of like tons of cut-co knives without the handles and 30x longer than usual, which I had to bend, twist, and shape each individually. I was wearing some heavy duty rubber gloves, but they lasted a whole 10 minutes before getting completely sliced through. I had a Utes band-aid on my palm, a skin-colored one on my thumb, a My Little Pony band-aid on my middle finger, and a flourescent yellow patch on my other palm at one point. Everyone else was smarter and made big, bold, simple shapes out of their sheets of metal. Anyway- I call it "the claw"...among other *edited* things .
