Nice write, tons of good info. Voted.
I don't know if I will have one but thanks for the vote of confidence.
I thought about putting the claws up but they seemed to have a bit of a sharp edge to them so I was afraid that with time they might begin to tear at the fabric. Its always neat to hear an idea come from another. Good luck on your build. Thank you.
Nice piece! I like the graphic that shows the different layers that go in to this it helps simplify it.
Your next instructable should include a warning. "The following Instructable may result in uncontrollable mouth watering" Voted!
Your finishing technique is ridonkulusly beautiful! Great looking piece.
I always vote for Batman! Nice job!
Nice work. I would have never guessed the plastic woven material was salvaged upcycle stock. You raise the bar when it comes to reclaiming materials. Voted!
Your use of magnets is inspiring! Love the small carving it really adds a nice personal touch. Voted!
Great write up and really sweet pen! Voted!
Love this look, I might have to steel this for one of my other projects. Voted!
I always vote for Batman stuff! Great build!

Thanks for the compliment and the clarification.
I love the look of Karambits they look so aggressive. This reminds me that I really should practice more with wood. Great write up! Kickass final piece!
That's a nice marking knife! At first glance I thought the handle had a copper inlay then I realized it was wood very cool handle design love the overall look.
Thank you I appreciate that!
I always saved for the same reason finally got around to making knives with them.
Awesome! I've made a bottle opener from a saw blade before check it out here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Bottle-Opener-From-Table-Saw-Blade/
Yes that's what I used a blue bottle propane torch that the home center sells for plumbing work.
That parting tool sounds pretty cool. Using the carbide teeth in that way gives me another idea. Thanks for the inspiration and for the compliment!
Awesome sauce! Love the video man you are one funny dude!
I would suggest cutting off a piece and heat treating (get the steel up to non magnetic) it then quenching it in oil. Then check it with a file, if the file doesn't bite in to the metal then its hardened and then chuck it in a vise and see if you can snap it in half. with a pair of pliers. If you can snap it in half that means that the steel is able to be hardened. If the piece just folds over or bends then it probably won't work as a knife. I performed this procedure before I made this knife ( http://www.instructables.com/id/Saw-Blade-Knife-2/ ). If you heat treat it and quench it in oil and it doesn't hardened then you can try heat treating it again and quenching it in water instead of oil. If that doesn't harden the blade than it might not be workable.

Walter knows his stuff he is a true craftsman.
Thanks I appreciate that.
Thanks for stopping by glad you liked it.
That would be cool the thicker material will probably work better for this too.

Very cool project!
Your welcome and thank you, I look forward to your next write up.
Excellent write up! You explain everything so well I always feel I can totally do this. Thanks!
This is a great desk simple and attractive design. Nice work.
I'll make sure to shine it up and post a pic.
Another great write up! The crucible is genius too. Can't wait to see what you do in December. I would love to see you make mokume gane, I made some awhile back from some quarters that came out okay. Look forward to your next write up.
Thanks! So you are the guy that has that handle. LOL! I'm Dan_the_maker_man on Instagram.

Thank you for your comment. I did think about the lights but couldn't find any for outdoor use just the white lights. I was actually thinking about using some red lights in the eyes but want to make sure I can make it safe for the outdoors.
Awesome, as for the oven goes as long as the blade is clean she will never know you used it. I didn't mention this in the write up but the pan I have the blade sitting on is from the dollar store. So you don't have to use one of the "good" pans either.
Thanks, I keep fining old saw blades around my shop its like they are multiplying.
Its a very rewarding build.
I don't see why not I would chose a picture that made it look like the skull is coming through the wall though. Basically make it look like it is coming out of the side of the house. Instead of the full skull do a partial skull peeking through a giant "crack" in the wall. And maybe the skeleton hands breaking through as well. I would show you what I mean but that level of drawing is beyond my ability.
Thanks I appreciate it.
I did a quick google search for "skull peeking through" and found these images. I think something like this might look cool.
Thanks I appreciate it!
I didn't have all the ingredients so I used mini marshmallows for the white parts and melted semi sweet chocolate for the dark details. My kids loved them. Thanks for this post.
These are sooo awesome! My kids love my chocolate chip cookies this will definitely take them to another level. Thanks for the write up.
Thanks. My next instructable will be how to build a fence. ;-)
