Knex Switchblade (Now Improved)

This is my knex switchblade. It was inspired by J_SCAP's butterfly knife. I decided I would make a switchblade, so it would lock in the open position or lock in the closed position (well, sort of), as the video shows (I hope you can view it). Hope you enjoy! Post pictures or videos if you build it!

This can also be used for self defense training if you add some of your sister's lipstick to the edges, that way you know if you have been cut and if it was a puncture or a slash. Although if you have the money, you should probably buy an actual rubber knife.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
This is all you will need. Exactly. I know this because I took apart the knife and rebuilt it from memory.

Step 2: The Frame

This will become the frame of the knife.

Picture 1: Build these.
Picture 2: Mutila... I mean "Enhance" a grey connector.
Picture 3: Attach it here.
Picture 4: Attach a red connector here.

Save the other part of the frame for the next step.

Step 3: The Blade

This is the blade very simple.

Picture 1: Build.
Picture 2: Attach it here.
Picture 3: Attach the other half or the frame.

Now you will need a rubber band for the next step.

Step 4: Bands

Attach a rubber band as shown in the pictures. The "improved" version (last three pics) can flip open much easier, but can't be flipped closed. I like flippy stuff. I have flippy pens, combs, knives, knex knives, pocket knives, and more!
me tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
