My typeface has been created in line with the theme ‘dangerous’. From my chosen theme I explored the idea of sharp edges (blades/swords/razor) and decided to create a serifed typeface in which the serifs are extended or curved into a point to mimic the shape of a blade/sword/knife. I chose ‘Naples’ (“Italy’s capital of crime”) as the name due to its historical reputation as a dangerous city and it's links to the Camorra.
Any feedback and criticism would be appreciated as the font is a work in progress (WIP).

"Ain't no party like a knife fight party."
I used the word 'sharp' as starting point for this fonstruction. I wanted to make something with sharp angles, and the edges are supposed to look a bit like a blade.
