In this Instructable will show the basic steps I use to make a wood carving knife. The shape of the blade can be varied easily. The knife will have a custom hardwood handle that uses a hidden tang. The blade will be formed from a used "Sawzall" blade. The project takes about 1 day to complete including glue setting time. Actual time spent on the project is about 1 to 2 hours plus sharpening.
As with any project involving powered tools, use safety precautions and Personal Protection Equipment..
