I made some for 5 dollars!
Tools I used:
Acetylene Cutting Torch (dremel or grinder would work)
Welder (I used an arc welder, but any type is fine)
Dremel with grinding wheel for fine tuning
3 pairs of ice skates (as close to the same size as possible) - $1.75 a pair at thrift shop
A few 20d nails - free
2 1/4 bolts (or any metal rod) - free
So here we go...
Side Note: I work for a non profit, HOPE worldwide. And currently we are undergoing our yearly fundraising campaign, the International Day Of Giving. Please donate to an organization that serves over 2 million people every year around the world!

Step 1: Making the Blades pt 1
I used my friends torch to cut the blades from the shoe, which generally involved catching the shoe on fire...
Kinda fun, though it made the entire garage smoked out....
Once they were cut off I starting on the shaping process...
Step 2: Making the Blades pt 2 - Shaping
Each one had the blade shape and a tang, so that there was a recess at the end to fit over my knuckle
I also put a bit of an edge on them
