Introduction: Kitchen Knife to Bushcraft/ Primitive Knife!

Picture of Kitchen Knife to Bushcraft/ Primitive Knife!

So first I went to a thrift store and got a longer thicker kitchen knife for 75 cents. This is going to use common and easy tools everyone should have. Yes it may be cheesy.

Step 1: Sand

First i took the handle off. I used some rough sand paper to get the rust off.

Step 2: Length

The handle was too long so I took some off and rounded it off with a grinder.

Step 3: Blade

Ii shortened it up using a dremel. Then went to grinder and sharpened it.

Step 4: Grind

Grinder it up and put a 90 degree edge on back for fire steel. The blade is high carbon steel.

Step 5: Handle

Took a stick and put it on. Later I whittled it Dow to fit good. ( cheesy but works.)

I must say also, be VERY careful with that wire wheel. i was doing a knife on mine yesterday and it grabbed my shirt like a vacuum. It tore up my chest REALLY bad before my dad could yank the plug out. (fortunately he was there, the thing had me so tight i couldn't move.) not to be a sissy or anything, but seriously, be careful.

I did one the other day out of a cleaver i found (also at garage sale), it makes a cool hacking knife. I also made a hunting/skinning knife out of another kitchen knife i found. i basically just drew out a shape on the knife and ground it down with my bench grinder. Then i put a new bevel on it and sharpened with my Smith's sharpening thinggummy. Razorsharp!

PS good instruct able I found the same knife in my field about a week a go

I think what he means is small knives are good for delicate jobs like cutting meat and large knives are good for cutting spears
