Draw the design onto the piece of steel so you know where to cut.

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.
