Step 1: Start Making a Knife

First you need
• scrap metal about 5mm thick
• drill
• grinder or drop swore
• chalk



Step 2: Mark the Blade Out

I already cut some teeth out on the blade then marked it out. Dont worry if you make a mistake the chalk rubs out

Step 3: Cut It Out

When cutting it out have a tape near by because of the heat !

Step 4: Final Step !

Cut out the back piece of metal and drill some holes in it. You put the hopes in it for when you make a Handel so the adhesive sticks better for a super strong bound. If you want the blade to be painted paint it now before putting the Handel on

Yeah bud i did but forgot lol to add it i put it in thinners and light it then used map gas on it
Well... this acually just did the first step: you have a blank now <br>There is quite a long way to go to turn a blank into a knife. <br>First of those (in iportance) is heat treating the blade
Just so u know the holes in the tang are actually supposed to hold pins for your handle. You might also want to adjust the angle oc your bevel it looks a little steep
