Step 1: Materials
sharpening stones(one smooth and one rough)
wide string(sorry, don't know what it is called, just found it)
hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 2: Cutting the Ruler
Step 3: Create an Edge
Furthermore, the edge created by the filer should be already quite sharp.
Step 4: Removing the Measurements
After the words have been removed, feel free to sand the blade so it is smoother.
Step 5: Sharpening the Edges
This is a link to how to sharpen the blade :
You may have to repeat this process more than what it actually tells you to do.
Step 6: Handle
Rasp the edges of the peices of wood so it is round.
Now, put the peices to the blade with. The blade is in the centre and 2 peices around it. You should find that the handle is bigger than how much metal that is provided by the blade itself.
After it had been glued, i filled the gap up with some spare metal i had, you could also do with cardboard.
I linseed oiled my handle later on to acheive a nicer colour.
Step 7: Grip
After that is done, put some electrical tape below the grip.
I also added a chain to the bottom of my handle just for the looks.
First i got some corrigated cardboard and cut it to the shape of the bottom of the handle
Then, with a chain, i cut it in half so one is in half.
Now, glue the peice of cardboard to the bottom of the handle. Then take the half chain and push it into the middle. This is just to make the holes. If you didn't get a hollow hole, use a knife to do so.
Now, take the rest of your chain, the desired length and put it into the half chain.
Finally, simply glue the half chain into the holes that were made earlier.
I then coloured the cardboard black with my permanent marker.
Step 8: All Finished!
i take no responsibility with what you do with this...
