Step 5: Sharpening

I couldn't find my dads oil stone so I use a Kitchen knife sharpener that was quick and easy. I being my clumsy teenage self, cut through my thumb and a fourth of my fingernail with the knife sharpening. So I tell all now: Watch where your fingers are!
This is great! I have an old multitool with broken pliers an this is a great way to extend their use. Thanks!
Just minutes after posting my last comment, I started working on my broken multitool and here it is:
NICE!!! what kind of multitool was it?
<p>A bit late lol. It's a Leatherman Mini-Tool.</p>
looks like a leather man micra to me
I don't know the exact brand, but it was a cheap one I bought years ago. After a week of use I had completely the pliers. I was just about to throw it out until I saw you instructable. Thanks!
&nbsp;I have one thats similar, doesnt have the ruler though, tool worx is the brand for me
Do you just solder the rivet back into place or weld another top on it or..?? what do you use to replace the filed rivets to hold the tools you kept in place?
its a pretty cool instrucable but you don't need to add stupid things like "admiring its shinyness" or "scratched out china"
yeah i have a habit of adding bits of my own humor. Some think its funny some don't. But I'm thick skinned about it. I'll take your word, it does sound stupid now, but it didnt then.
I'm doing this, thanks. I like the humour, keep it up!
Most featured instructables have little annoying things like that too, get over it.
Are you using one multitool to dismantle another, crappier multitool?<br />
haha. lol<br />
If you didn't know this, you want to sharpen the edge of the knife until it isn't shiny. On a dull knife, the edge is shiny. On a sharp knife, the edge is so keen (sharp) you can't see it.
Oh, so that's why it wouldn't cut the lace but slipped and blew open my thumb. Haha, i will remember that Boy Scout. Thanks :D
ya i got one of those gerber ones like uve got and i freakin love it. it was a preasent from my grandather
Have you ever heard of SOG? Their steel quality is much better than Gerber's as SOG contracts for the military and Gerber doesn't. Check out their website; <a rel="nofollow" href="http://sogknives.com/store/index.html">http://sogknives.com/store/index.html</a> ; and tell me what you think.<br/>
Some of SOG's stuff is complete crap, and they use the same steel and many of their knives; Now I'm not trying to contradict you, but I think that Gerber and SOG both are great knife companies.
I have a multi-tool but i traded it 4 a fixed blade knife
hey cool i have like three different multi tools two of them suck but one of them's a really nice leatherman one....so i just started filing one of the sucky ones just now
i gave one of these to my friend it wasnt loose until he used it for about a month im going to send him this now
Interesting conversion. Great use, of a somewhat useless multi-tool. Nice work.
