About

 Solid Steel Beasts 

How the Beasts came to be

I love doing projects with sheet steel. I noticed I had a bunch of scrap pieces I didn't know what to do with. I was just going to recycle my pile of scrap, but it didn't quite feel right because some pieces were pretty large.

I've always have a love for mythical creatures and as I was staring at one of the sharper angled pieces, it struck me that it looked a lot like a dragon wing!

After some tinkering that night with the laser cutter, I had a complete fire dragon.

I put it on my desk, and it got a lot of attention:

Passer-by notices beast: "These is the coolest dragons I've ever seen!"
Me: "I put them together myself from scrap metal."
Passer-by picks one up: "What the #$%# they are @#$@ awesome!"

                                                     Laser cutting with precision

I decided to make more: Fire Dragon, Frost Wyrm, Siberian Wolf, Griffin, Unicorn and Tiger were my favorite. (Yes there are more, but I wanted to start with my favorite designs). I even made every beast is adjustable and moveable, with joints at points of interest (legs, wings, etc). 

FIRE DRAGON

The fire dragon was always my favorite: it's the king of all mythical beasts.

 125mm*45mm*95mm. 

FROST WYRM

The antithesis to the fire dragon is the Frost Wyrm. Frost Wyrms are the skeletal remains of adult blue dragons killed by the Scourge. These reanimated vessels of destruction do not fear death; they dispense it! They have cold-based breath that counteracts the fire-breathing dragons.

130mm*45mm*117mm. 

SIBERIAN WOLF

Siberian Wolves live in packs and work together to hunt, raise their young, and protect their territory.  

 97mm*16mm*60mm.

 UNICORN 

In the Middle Ages, it was first described as a wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace. Its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable with healing properties. For those who still keep an innocent and young heart.

 60mm*44mm*62mm.

TIGER

I made Tiger with the sharp teeth and the powerful feet. They believe more in their own power, hunting alone, raising their young alone. 

 78mm*15mm*33mm.

 GRIFFIN 

Since antiquity, Griffins were known for guarding treasure. I had a griffin obsession when I was younger and now I'm happy to bring one to life!

 78mm*15mm*69mm.

 Why do you need it ? 

  • You are a metal junkie and need a centerpiece for your collection.
  • You love mythical beasts as much as I do and you want to proudly show it.
  • You want to have the coolest thing in the office - the ultimate conversation starter.
  • You want to signal to others that you are a "dragon" person, or a "unicorn" person, etc.

Everyone has been amazed by these steel beasts and asked me where they can get one. Each beast is laser cut with varying thickness stainless steel plates. They are movable at the joints so you can pose them however you like. 

These will come completely pre-assembled and ready to go. 

Get your favorite beast now!

Risks and challenges

We have already made our prototype and are ready to place a production order. Each Solid Steel Beast will be made using the same process, so we are confident it can be made. We face the risk of running behind on schedule if the handmade production process takes longer than expected.

Environmental commitments

Visit our Environmental Resources Center to learn how Kickstarter encourages sustainable practices.

Long-lasting design

These mythical beasts are made from 100% solid stainless steel. They will last for generations with proper care and can easily be recycled.

Reusability and recyclability

This project was borne out of my desire to re-use my scrap metal. Steel can be recycled indefinitely without any loss of strength. For every ton of steel recycled, 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved.

Sustainable materials

We will only use steel in making these, one of the most recyclable materials on earth.

Environmentally friendly factories

We will search for a factory that is environmentally friendly.

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

We will use minimal packaging to keep our carbon footprint low.
