This instructable is on how to make a knife out of an Exacto Blade or surgical blade.

Step 2:

Step 3: Split the Stick

Next, place the blade in the middle of the stick and baton it about half of an inch down.

Step 6: You're Done!

Step 7:

    If you look at my Altoids Survival kit it has 2 surgical blades and I have a paracord bracelet on me all the time. If you are in an urban survival situation, most office buildings have exacto blades.
