Introduction: Egyptian Knife

About: my real name is andrew. not much more that anyone really needs to know. i live in so cal, i love the beach, the forests, and all things nature.

This is a knife i made using Basta's How to Build a Knife I made it as a project for History, cause i knew everyone else was just gonna do pyramids or mummies and all that boring crap. it has a false edge of course because my teacher didn't want me to bring a sharp knife to school, so after i get graded on it I'll take it home and sharpen it. this was my first attempt EVER at making something like this and if I'm honest i am actually quite pleased with myself. tell me what you think! oh and yes i do realize that this doesn't really count as an instructable. i hope to post some actual instructables in the future!

    yeah i have been making knives and knuckledusters and stuff like this for years i will make something like this, because i really like the design, looks pretty cool although mine will have a carbon steel blade, that i will polish to a mirror finish, then i will add a good solid twine handle and maby add some lead on the handle under the grip to balance things out, i am kind of a perfectionist when it comes to knife making, but after all i do enjoy forging stuff and playing with hot metal and oil! lol

    you could use that as a history project on egyptians to lol

    how did you secure the twine i am making a sickle knife and i want to use that as a handle

    well an iron knife that was i think about 93% iron and 7% nickel was found in king Tutankhamen's mummy wrappings and at the time, such pure iron, and the fact that it was iron made it a great find.
