Intro: How to Make a Knife
Okay this is my first instructable on how to make a knife.
Things you'll need
• A drill
• A paint scraper made of carbon steel
• A branch
• A bench grinder
• JB weld epoxy
• A dremel
The paint scraper should look like this but not with round edges
*sorry for the lack of pictures
Step 1: Step One
First draw your design onto the paint scraper then cut it out using a dremel.
Step 2: Step 2
Now you have to use a hammer to break the plastic handle off the paint scraper. I dont have a picture of this.
Step 3: Step 3
Using a drill cut out a hole big enough for the knife into the top of your wood branch. Make sure the slot is deep enough as well.
Step 4: Step 4
Now you will want to mix your JB weld and spread it inside of the slot with a popsicle stick. After its spread put the bottom of your blade into the slot and let it dry for 24+ hours so the JB weld can harden.
Step 5: Sharpening
Take your knife when the JB weld has hardened and sharpen it at a bench grinder.
Step 6: Optional Step 6
Okay if you have an angle grinder with a 120 grit flap disk you can gently run it along the blade to get cool looking lines.
