I've always had a fascination with knives and how they have managed to remain so simple but yet so useful. This is a knife made from minimal materials that are easily obtained, I have constructed the knife using the Stag Antler as the handle, .22 empty cartridges as the rivets to hold the handle onto the tang, and the steel is from a concreting helicopter trowel machine. This knife must be taken seriously as it is an extremely sharp weapon,

Step 1: Designing the Blade

firstly, you must draw and design the style and shape of the knife blade and handle, design the knife tang taking into account the natural curvatures of the deer antler and then trace this design onto the steel
Did your rivets stick up a hair or did you sink them in? I used an antler i had with an old blade my dad had given me but couldnt sink mine in all the way but turned out pretty good.
Nice In(de)structable. Clear, concise, easy to follow. I especially like the rivets from repurposed .22 brass. The resulting design looks great. Well done!
