This font is the result of some research I did into the word sharp. I looked at deterrents like fences and specifically barbed wire ones. I didn't however want to create a font just using the barbed wire effect. I looked into the effects of barbed wire on pieces of clothing. This is where the tearing idea came from.


looks good

Really nice idea, I really like it. The letterforms themselves work really well with the torn effect.

Thank you for the comments. I made a more decorative/bold font when I studied in Swansea. This time I wanted to make a font that could be used as a decorative body text instead of a bold title font.
