Picture of origami flip knife!!
this is the first instructable on how to make an origami flip knife, which of coarse can flip in and is fairly simple and only needs a square sheet of paper, but entertains for hours.

Step 1: Starting folds

now fold the far end to the middle,like picture 1, and fold the bottom up to the line like picture 2. nowww, fold the close side to the middle, and it should look like the last picture.

Step 6: More folds......

fold the tip down a little as picture 1, and then fold the little sides down like #2, and fold in half.

Step 7: Almost..

fold the white part diagonally each way like pictures 2+3, and push on each side so it looks like picture 4.

Step 8: Too many steps

I've been with Origami for a while, and I've been wondering,
"Is the Origami flip knife a pretty sturdy piece of work?"  I realise that with some things, the more complicated the design, the more susceptible the craft is to wear and damage.  If I strike it softly yet firmly against a surface with it as I could the Origami shuriken and the kunai, or even if I carry it around often or whatever, would it last a while?  Carrying it around seems as though I might have ulterior motives, but no--I'm not inclined toward a little spree of my choosing, though paper cuts alone pose an immediate problem.  You know, I just can't help but to wonder.  I might, however, could do well with a little...practise.  Target practise, aiming, of course.  Nothing completely dangerous.

well if you fold VERY sharply it may cut skin.
