Step 1: Tools & Materials
Tools: Angle grinder Assortment of files Hacksaw Vice or clam Safety gloves Safety goggles Materials: 2in metal flat bar Paracord All of this can be found at your local hardware store. I purchased everything from either Home Depot or Lowes
Step 2: Designing the Blade
I'm making two different blades but I drew them symmetrical to each other to make sure one knife wasn't too big and the other wasn't to small. I also want to make sure I use as much metal as possible and don't waste any.
Step 3: Rough Cutting
I used the hacksaw to cut off the rough pieces and to cut it in half. Now I'm gonna just work on one of these knives and show you the finished product of both at the end.
Step 4: Grinding
Step 5: The Blade
Step 6: Shining It Up
Step 7: Wrap the Handle
I used paracord. If you decide to use paracord make sure you take the center sting out also known as gutting the paracord. I used glue to keep the paracord in place. â¢ â¢ â¢ I still need to do some shining to get the scratches out but other than that, I'm about finished.
