Introduction: Exacto Blade Survival Knife

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

Step 1: Materials

You need a stick, small rope (I used the inner strands of paracord), and a surgical or Exacto blade.

Step 2:

Sand one end of the stick with a large rock.

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 4: The Blade

Put the blade in so that it fits snug.

Step 5: Lashing

Start tying it VERY tightly and once you're done finish it with an overhand knot.

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.
