In this instrcuctable, I am going to make a real working craft knife from trash such as used pencil sharpener and a used ballpoint. After the knife is made, you can use it for cutting stuff such as paper, foamic sheet, cardboard etc. This instrcutable can be related to my childhood activities because by that, we wanted to do simple stuff the weird way and we did so. We did it on our own but i prefer for kids to do it under parental guidance because it deals with sharp blade and fire as well. I hope everyone find it useful in time of need.
