You need to sketch out a design on to a sheet of steel.
You then need to cut out the steel. ( I messed up on mine.)
After you've done that you should have something like this
You should remove the burs and put a good edge on the blade
You now new to harden and temper the steel. ( ill do another instructable on that, I dont want to have a mile long instructable)
You should now clean up your edge and mark and drill holes for the handle. ( I'm doing a paracord handle)( when drilling ALWAYS use clamps!)
You can paint at this point, I chose not to
Now time to wrap, i think you guys don't need too much instruction on it.
Continue this all the way down and when you get to the bottom pull both ends through and tie a square knot and melt the ends together
And your done! If you make this PLEASE DON'T do anything stupid with it. Feel free to comment.
awesome!!! this is what I was looking for. almost the idea I had!!!! by the way I have those shoes.
you used a jig saw to cut metal? I just have to try that when I make my knives, before I just used a grinder and it worked fine except it assent very accurate. What kind of bit did you use?
