Today I will be showing you how to take a piece of steel and turn it into a blade
1. Piece of steel to make knife out of
3. Angle grinder or some other way to cut the metal
4. Safety gear ( gloves, ear plugs, and goggles)
5. A place to work
Step 1: Drawing
Draw the design onto the piece of steel so you know where to cut.
Step 2: Start Cutting!
Take your angle grinder and cut out the knife out of the steel. Be sure to wear all safety gear!
Step 3: Sharpening
Take your grinding wheel and put it on your angle grinder. Then, start sharpening your knife. Grind the edge evenly on each side at 30 degrees until you have a nice and sharp edge. I forgot to take pictures of this process.
Step 4: Cleaning Up
Take your grinder and grind the sides to make them nice and smooth. Also, grind away any rust from your knife
Step 5: Paracord
Take some paracord and wrap your knife. I did a pretty simple wrap but, you can do whatever you want.
Step 6: You're Done!
Have fun and be safe with your new knife!
