Tristan-main by peterku Tristan-main by peterku
A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country, especially in a military capacity. Historically, in Europe, knighthood has been conferred upon mounted warriors. During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of lower nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior.

Since the Early Modern period, the title of knight is purely honorific, usually bestowed by a monarch, as in the British honours system, often for non-military service to the country.

And what about if they still existed in original form. What they would look like? And what they would think about our times.

My concept is imaginary/sci-fi/fantasy idea of knight sword-TRISTAN in modern suit. Concept, modeling and rendering is mine. I did whole job in 3ds max, rendering engine is V-ray. Model is highpoly. Hope that dimensions are ok. Grip is oval and it is stretched at the end to hold hand at the place.

I did 2 picture:
1. Tristan - main - peterku.deviantart.com/art/Tri…
2. Tristan - secondary - peterku.deviantart.com/art/Tri…



Both pictures are big and details are quite visible when you open pictures in their original size.


So what do you think? Do you like it or not? Tnx for comments if any and bye.

This piece is so well done, i was convinced it was real at first sight, and only the description would have been able to change my mind. The angles and textures on the model are strong and hard, but almost organically smooth, the black carbon and white steel designs, especially on the object above the hilt, really add to the modern feel of the sword. The weapon looks worthy of combat, and any ceremony. I can easily see it being held in the hands of a knight in a accompanying set of armor, or the hands of a modern monarch. A balanced, smooth, solid model and piece of equipment.
What do you think?

Needs to be made in real life.  Do you use Vray or Mental Ray for rendering in Max?

Amazing sword :D 

But as I read the description, there's something I hate about knighthood. Since I live in the U.K., famous people are the only ones being knighted which especially annoying because soldiers during the old times were knighted for their service to the king and queen but now people are being knighted for what? making people laugh? being famous? we have soldiers helping in Afgan and risked their lives and what do they get for doing something in service to the queen and for helping their comrades... a medal and a pat on the back. Yes a medal is a great honor but it's replaced the pride of knighthood. Just something that's been on my mind is all X3

If you actually read the Honours Lists, you'll discover (a) you've not heard of most of those honoured, because they are from the works of diplomacy, charity and public service rather than celebrity; (b) celebrities who are honoured often receive honours for public service and services to charity rather than for doing their jobs, and (c) every honours list will include members of our armed forces, emergency services and intelligence agencies - you just don't hear a lot about them in the Press because they aren't public figures.

But to also contemplate the temptation of wearing a futuristic knight suit and going outside with this sword.
The "No Touchy" beats the "Touchy" because I could not stand to damage this with even a scratch...
Therefore, I could never own this sword even if I had a million dollars...
For this sword is too awesome to be touched by my spindly geek hands...

   Visually, it is superb. I would be interested in the specifications (materials, weight, balance, etc.) so as to truly "know" this sword although I have minimum knowledge regarding blades of this style and application. You mentioned that Knighthood is more or less an "honorary" title, especially so in modern history. I might suggest that a sword is rather symbolic as well. Many weapons, armor and battle techniques severely limit it's use in actual engagement. History shows that Royalty has provided a pathway to quasi-nobility for commoners through Knighthood but ultimately it seems to be in there own best interests militarily and in terms of public relations. ALL you work I reviewed is excellent.

I love the concept of a modern militaristic knight. Just imagining this group of super-elite warrior monks (which is very nearly what European nights were,) in a modern setting is just so appealing to me.
