Introduction: How to Make a Fixed Blade Knife With Minimal Tools

in this instructable, I'll teach you how to make a fixed blade knife with only two power tools: angle grinder, and drill

Step 1: Tools

1: drill
2: angle grinder (with cutting and sanding disc)
3: hammer
4: safety glasses
5: sharpie
6: gorilla glue

Step 2: Materials

1: wood (or any other kind of handle material)
2: steel
3: leather (or any other kind of spacer)

Step 3: Rough Draft

draw out what you want your knife to look like on the steel. make sure to include the tang (part of knife that goes inside the handle)

Step 4: Rough Cut-out

clamp your steel in a vice, or to the table. Then use the cutting disc for the angle grinder on the steel.

Step 5: Sand the Steel

after you cut out the blade, it's gonna look pretty crappy. so use the sanding disc for the angle grinder on the steel.

Step 6: Attach Handle

gorilla glue the handle material into the tang. start with a spacer then attach the handle. make sure you using gorilla glue, not super glue. gorilla glue expands when it dries, to hold the handle on.

Step 7: Let the Glue Dry

place the knife blade side up under somthing heavy, like a shelf. and wait.....

Step 8: Final Sand

smoothen out the knife for the final time to make it look good.

Step 9: DONE-SKIZZLE!

your done! now brag that knife around to your buddies, and maybe try to sell it!
