Ever had the desire to own a throwing knife but you didn't want to hand over a load of cash? Well here's how. This is a very fast project with and is very rewarding. There's nothing like sending a knife 12 feet across a room thudding into a target.

Materials

Steel (i just mild steel from the hardware store)

Bench Belt Sander ( A file works too)

sandpaper

Angle grinder

Pencil,Sharpie, Pen, Soapstone (any)

Clamps, vice, etc.

Step 1: Design and Plan

First you need to come up how you want it to look.

i went with a very simplistic shape but the possibilities are endless. i recommend nothing to far stay in your skill level. A symmetrical knife is better but not required. FYI larger knife are much easier to throw trust me!

You can make a cardboard template but i just marked right on the steel. i used a piece of soapstone because it stays on even with heat.
I got an angle grinder at a garage sale for about $8 and it was an expensive hitschi
This will be fun, great job !!!
<p>Nice work. I have found with throwing knives, for beginners the bigger the better.</p><p>up to 13inch. what do you reckon about this.?</p>
This is awesome! Amazing what one can do with some flat steel.
<p>hi, awesome instructable. how long was your knife btw</p>
When throwing it hold it like you would a tv remote it works better. I have thrown knives like this at rendezvous and had a lot of success
are you talking like a scouting rendezvous?
Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try it out!
I like it
Sweet could a multi tool like the renovator work?
Very awesome! I wish I had all the tools to make this, I'm still looking for ways to cut metal as that's one of the tools I don't have yet...
