Introduction: Make a Knife From a Pair of Scissors

Step 1: Materials

- scissors
- sharpie
- knife
- pliers
- 6ft of 550 paracord
- dremel (optional)
- lighter

Step 2: Dismantling the Scissors

If your scissors are broken you can skip this step:

I personally think this is the hardest step. Use a knife to pop of the cap. Then, pop out the metal piece holding them together. Now pull them apart

Step 3: Color

Use the sharpie to color

Step 4: Get Paracord

I used six feet of black paracord

Step 5: Wick It

Wick the paracord with a lighter

Step 6: Adding the Paracord!

Put end as shown in image

Step 7: Begin Wrapping

Just wrap around Handel until in the opening

Step 8: Adding the Cross-wrap

Weave the paracord in a figure a around the opening

Step 9: Adding the Loop

Go through the end and form a loop

Step 10: Finish the Loop

Tie a good knot

Step 11: Finish

Cut the excess paracord and wick it again

Step 12: Enjoy

Enjoy
