Introduction: Making a Survival Knife

Hi guys,

I was asked if i wanted to post on Instructables and I'm really starting to like this community. I will be posting more projects soon. For now I wanted to share this project:

The knife is made out of O1 steel. I buy this in Europe at https://shop.premium-steel.eu/en_eu/ and they rock! Cheap, a lot of different sizes and quick delivery. Their http://www.premium-steel.co.uk/steel-guide steel guide is also a very nice tool for finding a proper steel for your needs.

If you have any questions, please ask. I will try to answer them Asap.

Kind regards

Alexander

Hi JC,

I'm afraid not as for they are my intellectual property. I want to protect it and therefore would like to support you into making your own unique design ;)

Nice, I am going to try this myself. I already owe multiple survival knives (mostly bought following the criteria laid down on this site http://survivalseverything.com/index.php/2015/09/1... but I have always wanted to have my own homemade one too.

Thanks for this instructional!

i used ballistol gun blue. quite easy, it is important to clean the blade well! and make sure that the blade is warm like 60c.

Good Morning! I was just wanting to comment on how nice you are to the people who are interested in your gift. I am not trying to be facetious! I am serious about being nice and about having a gift for being a craftsman.

Oh yeah, and you are Great at Making Things! David

Sure:

It's the black one. It has straps so that it can be mounted. In the pouch there is lube/oil, a sharpening stone (fallkniven dc3) and the firesteel that is made in the video. I hope this helps.

Your shop space looks amazing! Great job on the knife. How long did it take to make?

Have a great day! :-)

Thank you! This knife took me around 13 hours to make. Heat treatment was done in a batch to reduce time. Have a nice day yourself!

Beautiful work ! I really like your homemade jig for sharpening. However I am afraid you have way to many toys in your shop,not really I am just really jealous. Again, great job, keep them coming.
