Step 1: Find Metal and Cut to Size
find a strip of metal you have and cut to size then mark out the blade area and handle tangs then using the saw cut out the tangs and file down the edges
Step 2: Heat the Tangs
Heat and bend the tangs to you're desired angle
Step 3: Find and Cut Wood for Handles
Find and Cut wood to length of you're tangs and then drill a hole slightly bigger than the tangs in the top 1/8th inch
of the handle then drill the rest with a slightly smaller bit then hammer the handles onto the tang
Step 4: Sharpen Then Polish the Blade
using you're grinder (mine is a precision grinder for sewing scissors and knives) at 45 degrees grind the edge on the blade the end facing the same way as the handles so it cuts when pulled towards you
