Introduction: Survival Knife, Knex

Picture of Survival Knife, Knex
This is the X91KSK, it's just my version of a survival knife, in knex.

Survival knives are meant for use in forests, whether for combat, or for survival.

They are normally quite weighty, and are used for stabbing food, rope work and sometimes sawing wood.

They do have saws, or teeth, on them, but there is not a lot.

My one, I think, is comfortable, quite weighty, and survival knife like.

If you wish, you can sharpen the end of one rod for stabbing power, however, I will personally hunt you down if you even aim it at someone, or something valuable.

I'm an MGS fanatic, and the knife is a lot like the knife in MGS3.

1. knife
2. kind of based on
3. stab it! ~I can't i broke my knife!!! CRAB BATTLE!!! OLIOLIOOOOO!!! (See video below)

For those of you that really like/hate MGS3 (no spoilers):


Step 1: Pieces


grey 1
reds 3
yellow 1


grey 12 (but i used 2 blue half hinge cause of low pieces)
red 10
green 1
yellow 1


Y con (black clip in my other 'ibles) 11
blue clip 6 (but i used 3 tan clips cause of low pieces)
ball joint thingy 1
blue spacer 1

Not many is there!

Step 2: Handle

Picture of Handle

1) make it.

grey x3
greyx3 (you don't have to use blue)
grey x3
red x3

on 2 red rods + 1 grey

2) back

Step 3: Blade/teeth.

Picture of Blade/teeth.


1) make the blade

2) add these to handle

3) add these to blade

4) connect them.

Step 4: That's It!

Simple yet effective.

If your gonna use this in a Knex war,you can threaten someone for ammo/info, using the teeth against them.

Guardians38 (author)2010-09-27

an really easy way to get around the weak spot is to cover the whole knife in electrical tape. its really sturdy. i chucked it against my wall and it didn't break

The Jamalam (author)2008-09-20

yay! this is a stronger knife than any other knex one i've built!

barrax (author)The Jamalam2008-09-20

are you gonna rate it then?

The Jamalam (author)barrax2008-09-20

? after that, no

barrax (author)The Jamalam2008-09-20

why not?

The Jamalam (author)barrax2008-09-20

because you are being too expectant. be calm and relax, be unexpectant and then people will rate without you asking.

my bunny survives and throws his legs at you. You fall to the ground having a seizure for about an hour while my bunny whacks you with his legs

DrWeird117 (author)The Jamalam2009-01-15

Severely bruised, and thinking quickly, I throw bunny's legs into the oven and bake them. I eat them for +10 HP. RESULTS +1 Intelligence and Quick Thinker perk +10 HP +20 Combat Exp. +Special Weapon: Bone Scepter Unlocked!

Oblivitus (author)Oblivitus2008-09-20

You even said sharpen here! I was gonna say that! Stop being psychic! Lol!

barrax (author)Oblivitus2008-09-20

Oh and do you want to join my group, i'm feeling kind of lonely :(

Oblivitus (author)barrax2008-09-20

Post the spring gun, that looks like an interesting idea.

The Jamalam (author)Oblivitus2008-09-20

lol, nevermind. i like the new avatar btw!

Oblivitus (author)The Jamalam2008-09-20

He did come up with it himself though, I'm not saying that he stole it, we just both came up with the same idea at the same time.

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-21

You mean the smiley, or what I said?

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-21

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-21

I just thought of writing a song as a tribute to this, and that was gonna be the title.

1. an instrument for cutting, consisting essentially of a thin, sharp-edged, metal blade fitted with a handle.

barrax (author)stevoIution2008-09-21

Knex knife - noun, an instrument designed to replicate a knife.

stevoIution (author)barrax2008-09-22

My dictionary must be out of date...

barrax (author)stevoIution2008-09-23

sorry it should have: knex -noun a toy (for 8+) designed to replicate something.

DrWeird117 (author)barrax2009-07-21

Mine says, "see 'awesome'"...

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-21


travw (author)stevoIution2009-04-03

You must be really bored and lonely if you have nothing better to do than criticize other people's knex knives instead of MAKING an instrument for CUTTING, consisting essentially of a thin, SHARP-edged, METAL blade fitted with a handle... LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL PONED!
