This knife is perfect for if Zombies were attacking and you're friend did not have a knife to defend himself. So just make him (her) one. Also It is The cheapest knife to make. I had a blast making this, and I hope you do to :)

Step 1: What You Need

Saw blade & normal blade (I have a swiss army knife that had both)

Step 2:

Now at the top of the blade you are making slant up and in to create a point (almost like sharpening a pencil with a knife) After you have made a point (this is optional) sand the blade and handle it makes it look a lot better (but if zombies are attacking you don't need to do this step)

Step 4:

Did you know that the art of whittling is recommended by health professionals to relieve stress & depression (along with knitting)? - I figure the whittling would be the more useful in a zombie plagued world scenario though! BTW to make you're knife really sharp run a bead of superglue along the edge then finish by sanding but beware this really does make it dangerously sharp!
