Hi and I will show you how to make a knife from wood.
Get a branch. Preferably hardwood
Get a whittling knife and flatten the sides. Be careful with the knife!
Same process but the opposite side..
At the top of the tapered sides, there is bark. Get rid of it.
This is how it looks.
Now sharpen from the top. Making it look like a Bowie
Notch the division between the blade and the handle.
Now sand the knife to sharpen it. You can also put glue to harden the blade. No tormenting siblings!!!
