Introduction: Knife From Recycled Materials

This is a knife I made from salvaged and recycled materials. The blade is an old kitchen knife that is reshaped and re edged. The crossguard is part of a graphics card holder. All the leather is from an old la-z-boy. The sheath uses aluminum flashing and copper wire from a transformer. Also, in the sheath there is a hard drive magnet to hold the knife in. Fell free to ask me any questions you may have.

Knife making is honestly not hard. I made one today out of boredom for like 5$ and 45min of my time...However by the looks of this he OBVIOUSLY very experienced in knife making and very talented...Great job man.

Ill sell you the $20 dollars for the bargain price of $25 dollars... On the grounds that it has touched my awesome knife.

Well to be honest this is one of the better and more well made knives on instructables, it's a refreshing break from all the "prison" weapons you see around.
