This week we want you to create a survival knife, then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #SurvivalKnife.

It's safe to say that every hero in a zombie movie or adventure game will need some help from their trusty survival knife. There are so many uses for a survival knife and they really are undervalued in comparison to other weapons and equipment. Your challenge this week is to design or build a survival knife. It can been 2D, 3D, toony, photorealistic, new, old, bloodied, or hand crafted.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
