Phurba Dagger Assembled by billybob884 Phurba Dagger Assembled by billybob884
For those of you that don't know, this is the Phurba Dagger, a three-bladed knife and key component to many of the puzzles in the relatively new PS3 game, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. If you haven't played this or its predecessor, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, they are both fantastic games (though the latter is a bit watered down in terms of puzzle difficulty...).

The model feels a little small overall; I tried to match it as best I could to screenshots since I couldn't find any actual dimensions, but at least everything looks proportioned pretty closely. The final build comes to ~2" (~5cm) long, ~2" (~5cm) wide, and ~12.5" (~32cm) tall. Took about a day to build; it's really not very complex. The hardest part was trying to keep the blade tip as straight as possible.

I didn't include pieces for a stand though; the one shown I quick threw together and spray-painted, but honestly it'll sit flat on its own, so you really don't need one if you don't feel like making one.

Chloe: Oh, is that an ancient Tibetan ritual dagger in your pocket?
Nathan: Well, maybe I'm just happy to see you.

Just finished making this one. ;p Wasn't on the survey though. :( Anyway, this was incredibly simple to put together. The tip of the dagger was a bit annoying to deal with, I guess you could say. Thanks for the template. =^_^=

there are instructions on how to use pepakura to help you build models, which is the modeling program i used to design the dagger originally, and the pepakura model has been included in the description above.
