These are the first three knives I made, The Bowie knife is made from an old file and some pine paneling. The second knife with no scales or para-cord Is also made from an old file, It has to be finish sanded, sharpened and given a handle. The knife with the green para-cord handle is the last knife I made  It is made from an older circular saw blade I have thoroughly tested it and it is razor sharp and would make a decent hunting/skinning knife, But the para-cord would get soaked in blood and would stink!! Thanks for looking!! If you liked them please vote and or favorite it!! All suggestions or comments welcome!! P.S I still have quite a bit of that circular saw blade left and when I make it into a knife I will make a full ible!!

I took a look at all your up loads. Over all very good. I'm an avid survivalist, and have taught preparedness classes.
A point of thought: your salt, I use the restaurant packets in a zip bag, if you drop/spill the bag, you don't loose it all on the ground.

Thank you!! I never even thought of those salt and sugar packets but that is a really good idea!! As soon as the restaurants open I will get some!! Thanks for the complimants and the tip!!

If we don't help each other for the coming storms, none will survive.

What tools did you use? How thick is the green paracord one?
camping crazy (author)  Survivorkidjr7 months ago

I used an angle grinder, cordless drill and a couple of files on the one with the para cord. And I used files and a drill on the other two. I don't know how thick they are as I don't have the label off the blade anymore. I now have a belt sander and that speeds things up a lot!!

Also multi purpose. Salt is a disinfectant. Burns like hell, but will clean a wound and speed clotting in an emergency, it's better to scream now, than suffer long later.

Yah I have heard of people pouring salt in their cuts!! It almost sounds worse than alchohl or iodine!!

Very compact.
