you could make an awesome karambit fighting knife ...the curve seems perfect and it has that nice curved back that could make a very very interesting knife...if you para cord wrapped the handle you could have yourself a knife on par with those $100 tactical knives.

Would love a little more detail on step 3 on the steps to epoxy and/or pin the blade. Love this idea. Thanks!

Basically, I cut a channel in the wood with a table saw, to a depth of 1/2". Then I used a 2 part epoxy to adhear the blade to the wood inside that channel. I was saying that additionally you can drill a hole and put a metal rod through for additional holding strength. I this helps!
