Paper Butcher Knife

Hey there!

It's my first instructable, so please gimme constructive criticism or some smiley faces in the comment section.

And i made the graphics simple on purpose. Should be easier to understand.

So without further ado... enjoy.

Step 1: Step 1: Preparing Your Stuff

You will need:

-10 A4 paper sheets

-a gluestick

-a pencil

-something sharp (scissors, xacto, katana, laser cutter...)

Everything lying on your workspace already? Go to the next step.

Step 2: Step 2: Making the Composite Paper

First, fold a sheet into a half, unfold, cover one part with glue, fold. Repeat

Second, cover one double-sheet with glue, place another. Repeat.

Then squash it firmly and leave to dry.

Step 3: Step 3: Make the Knife

Just follow the instructions on the pic...

Step 4: Finished!

Easy, huh?

Now go cut some stuff with it.

    This looks like a good way to make a little prop knife. Do you have any photos of a finished version? I'd love to see how it turns out! :)

    A bigger version of this, with silver coating, was used in a school play at my place. Of course made by me. This is the small version.
