Introduction: Vintage Saw Blade Knife With Leather Sheath
This knife was made from a vintage saw blade which was left by my grandpa, and I used a grinder for the shape of this saw blade. It can be a EDC knife.
Step 1: Sharpening the Knife
The 1st step is cut the shape of the knife, I used a grinder for this step, because was too dirty so I didn't take photos. then sharpen the knife on stones.
Step 2: Install the Handles
the handles were made from rosewood, because the wood were not wide enough, so I glued 2pieces into 1. and then glue the 2 pieces of handles with epoxy glue on the knife. Use files and sandpapers No.180 to 5000 make the surface smooth. The knife is finished but need a sheath..
Step 3: Cut the Leather for Sheath
draw the shape on the paper, then cut a piece of cowhide of that shape
Step 4: Sewing the Loop
I have to sew the loop first, that it can be put on the belt.
Step 5: Finish Sewing
still use saddle sewing to finish it. after all finished, apply some bee wax on the edge, then friction with a stick.
