Introduction: Bicycle Chain Handle Knife

bicycle chain handle knife
a broken, unused knife blade, and an oily bicycle chain born out of marriage ...

1.
It was the bottom of the blade with two holes
was fitted to the chain pin, hammered together

2.
I finished welding the holes

3.

3 chain piece is cut off, and gradually from top to bottom "sewed"


more idea would be to handle the development of

    such a cool idea its looks cool as wel so well done

    Pretty cool idea

    blade is ~ 10 cm ~ 3.9 inch
    handle ~ 15 cm ~5.9 inch (part three , in all 45 cm ~17.71inch)

    you may want to experiment with the length of the handle may be better on the shorter, gravity distribution is better

    to taste

    How long is it? And did you wield the chain togheter and then wield it on the blade?

    Love the idea "hate" the result.
    With all good intentions. ;)
    No, seriously I really love idea. But it look messy and it gives me an idea how to make my own version.
    I will make mine out of a simple pocket knife.
    With this kind of principle:

    And then try to make it work. :)

    I totally agree with you a bit neater welds would make it look awesome That said great idea looks pretty cool

    too high a current
    thin the chain should be thicker
    can not be controlled min: 50A
    For almost burned the chain

    1 trick I found with mig welders when trying to weld thin sheet metal a good way to stop it from blowing thru the panel was to put several jumper leads for cars each 1 end to end & connect 1 end to the earth clamp & the other to the job. The long length of wire creates a resistance that drops the power & use a thin electrode.
    I haven't tried it on a stick welder but I think it would work the same. you might be able to get a neater weld. You could also try welding spots on the edge of the chain links to lock the links & use small welds on every 2nd or 3rd to hold the strips together then you can grind them smooth after.
    I often make 2 of most things I make, the 1st a prototype I'm never happy with because I see the mistakes I have made & the 2nd, I make changes so I get a neater job just some suggestions I hope it helps

    Running your welds downhill will also allow you to move faster without blowing through.

    You could also braze it with a silver alloy, gives you more control. If you clean it in a strong acid, you could even get a nice coating.

    Now I know what to make my father for Christmas!!

    that looks amazing, too bad the blade is not straight though. how is the balance?

    I like the curve. Gives it an 'Exotic' look.

    im talking about the sixth picture, the blade leans slightly right. the overall shape is nice though.

    ok , but Slicing is a convenient

    the balance is the lower third of the shaft

    no, el conde Drácula era el maestro

    how does it feel in the hand?
    what is the heft like?

    yeah, it looks pretty messy with the welds....but it rather reminds me of a piece of modern art. so i think they're justifiable.

    It looks great. I'd skip the rope and try chrome electroplating or some other rust-proofing the handle. Knives with tangs would prob work better. Did you know you can weld with jumper cables and two car batteries in series?
