Picture of How to make my Jaw Bone Knife
I have only made 2 knives prior to this one and this is one of my best. I make my knives out of old circular saw blades. The old blades are so much better because the steel is made from quality materials. As far as designing them, i sketch out different designs and single out my favorites. There's only one picture because I already made it and didn't take pictures. But i will describe it good.
I will make an instructable with pics next knife I make.

you know, i have actually had the best of luck just using a hacksaw to cut it. Thanks!
Good job at makeing the knife but i got afew qustions... With hotglueing the knife into the jaw bone how well does it hold up?? Also what type of animal did the bone come from and ho did you get it??
well the bone had a crack in it so its not sturdy but the glue holds up surprisingly really well. The bone was from a deer that i found while hiking around. If the bone had no crack in it, it would be very durable and sturdy.
