Here are the things you will need:
- 1 Sheffield "Rhino" Utility Blade
- Duct Tape
- Piece of Milk Carton approx 3"x5"
- Piece of Cardboard approx 3"x5"
- Super Glue
- Marker or Pen
- Para Cord
Step 1: Making the Handle
Step 2: Making the Handle (Continued)
Mark and cut a piece of the cardboard in the same manner as the milk carton. Wrap the cardboard around the milk carton you just attached to the blade, use a few drops of super glue to bond the cardboard to the milk carton. Make sure you wrap the cardboard so it covers the open end of the milk carton. (If you wrapped the milk carton with the fold on the bottom the cardboard should have the fold on the top.)
Step 3: Wrapping the Handle
Continue wrapping the para-cord around the handle, adding a drop of super glue every 2-3 wraps, until the entire handle is wrapped. When you have finished wrapping the handle take the end and lay it along the back edge of the handle. Trim any para-cord that extends past the top (or bottom) of the handle. Using a few drops of super glue and glue the tag end to the back of the handle. When the glue is completely dry use a lighter to heat the para-cord until it just starts to melt and press it firmly into the back of the handle.
Step 4: Making the Sheath
Next, using duct tape, wrap the milk carton/cardboard piece from the top and down around the sheath. When you get to the bottom of the sheath make a slit in the duct tape and fold it around the back of the sheath. Continue wrapping until you have covered the sheath from the top all the way around.
Next, wrap duct tape around the sheath from side to side.
