Step 1: Gathering Materials and Tools
You will need a few tools and supplies to make a carving knife.
- Old knife with proper blade
- Dremel or some other rotary tool with attachments
- Attachment for cutting. I used some cheap cutting discs I bought from Aliexpress. Also you can use original Dremel attachment for cutting 540.
- Attachment for sharpening, Dremel 932
Step 2: Cutting
First draw a cutting line of desired shape you need on blade and then start cutting with rotary tool.
Safety measures: use a safety glasses and rotary shield attachment.
Step 3: Sharpening and Shaping Blade
Advantage of making your own knife is that you create desired shape. That can be done manually with a sharpening stone or with rotary tool with attachment (932 Dremel for example).
Maybe someone find this usefull.
I used this knife for first steps in whittling and carving projects. Finishing with much more precisely tools, but that's another story...
