Hello to all, Today we are going to be making a Halo Combat knife from pallet wood I found laying around. I have made two templates, one is a Halo 2 and the other is Halo 4. Please vote for me in the Halloween and reclaimed contest.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

Picture of Stuff You Need
  • A piece of wood. I used some wood that I got from a pallet
  • A saw. I used a scroll saw
  • Paint
  • Sharpie
  • Paint brush
  • Wood filler
  • Wood glue or hot glue

Step 2: Cutting Yee Wood

Trace the template on to the wood, and cut it out. I cut mine with a scroll saw, you could use a jigsaw or cooping saw.

Step 3: Sanding, Beveling, and the Guard

Clean up the knife you just cut with some sand paper and start the beveling. Cut the bevel off the template and use it as a guide for beveling. You can bevel the knife in a few ways, you could use a belt sander or rotatory tool and sand at an angle. Another option is to use a knife and cut along the edge of your knife at an angle. Since I used pallet wood I had extra sanding, I also had to use some filler on my knife. For the guard cut two thin pieces of wood and glue them on to the knife.

Step 4: Painting and Distressing

Paint a coat of silver on the blade. Tape off the bevel and give the whole thing a coat of black. Water down some black acrylic paint and put it on the blade then wipe it off with a rag to give it a distressed look..

Step 5: Finished!

That's a neat prop :) I've seen some nice wooden knife props where the blade was coated in silver sheeting too that helps add to the aesthetic.
