Dragonlance Legends: Tasslehoff Burrfoot's Rabbitslayer
Thinking Rabbitslayer was only a nondescript dagger, I wasn't entirely thrilled to begin work on this project. Then Trena informed me about a short story written specifically about this weapon, as well as its entry in the Bestiary of Krynn. Rabbitslayer is actually a tiny living dragon which feeds off the blood of its victims. It remains dormant most times, disguising itself as an ornate dagger, fooling even the most skilled Dwarven smith. Now that's a cool piece!
The based of the dagger was created with MDF, with Bondo to fill in the angles of the blade. Apoxie Sculpt was then added to create the surface details.
The dragon's mouth contains a small orb, which was cast with polyester resin with an LED embedded inside.
The switch and the battery compartment were incorporated in the underside of the grip. The battery compartment is secured with 4 neodymium magnets.
