Step 1: Things You Will Need:

Step 2: Cut the Wood

You can decide how much to cut according to how long you want the blade to be.

Step 3: Sharpen and Sand

Step 4: Adjusting the Width

Adjust the width of the bottom of the blade according to the hole in the bamboo.

Step 5: Connect, Glue and String

Connect to the bamboo, adding glue to reinforce it and tie string around it as tight as you can.

    Nice job! It's nice that it is so easy to sharpen if it gets dull :)

    Wait so you need a regular knife to make a wooden one though :p

    But the small pocket knife won't kill an animal easily because it isn't long enough;)

    Unless you attach it to a stick to make a spear !

    well then if you are surviving with someone else u could give him this wooden one and you keep the other metal pocket knife to yourself or this could just be a secondary knife just in case u loose the pocket knife or even brake it.

    I cant imagine this holds an edge very well? But then again, Its easy to sharpen

    Forgot to say, Well made. I'd rather have this than nothing if I was stranded and needed a tool/weapon

    Good luck finding glue in the wild... trying to "survive" and all...

    have you ever heard of wax in the forest it's quiet easy to found

    Actually, I've made some pretty awesome glue from tree sap! Glue is probably one of the easiest substances to obtain without basic tools.

    Thanks for wishing all of us good luck though!

    Glue is there to reinforce so you don't need to follow that step, because if the bamboo and stick fit tightly you won't have problems.

    Hey, if you run into a rude and inconsiderate Vampire while lost in the woods you will be fixed up to deal with it. Pointy sticks are an old school way to protect yourself from a lot of critters. Nice job.

    Well done. dan3008, if you fire harden the blade, it hold an edge surprisingly well (depending on the type of wood of course).
