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 !

Picture of 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

A Mapp gas torch will not provide enough heat required for hardening steel unless done with a forge and a very small knife.

Well... this acually just did the first step: you have a blank now
There is quite a long way to go to turn a blank into a knife.
First of those (in iportance) is heat treating the blade
