Step 1: Parts

Parts:
- Hacksaw blade
- Duct tape,
I used a 32 tooth per inch (TPI) blade since I was going to use it to open boxes, but feel free to use whatever TPI you would like.

Step 2: Create Handle With Duct Tape

Create a handle by wrapping the hacksaw blade with duct tape. Wrap it a number of times to create a large enough handle to grip.

Step 3: Build Out Handle

Add more duct tape to build out the handle so that it can be gripped.
Add extra layers to cushion it.
The completed saw can be used for light sawing, cutting cardboard and opening/breaking down boxes.

It is a simple Instructable. Not every Instructable has to be complex involving 10+ steps; some of the best ones I have seen have been simple ones. This tool has been extremely useful to me on a project, and it is much safer than a boxcutter.

This is more of a tip than an Instructable, however it can be put up in the forum:

Sry I think just wrapping some DuctTape on Sawblade isn't enough for an Instructable.
Making the Handle moveable from blade would be better Idea.
