Primitive Stone Knife

This stone knife design can be used in emergencies for survival situations, or just for fun!

Whitling tool(recommended)
Small-medium stone
Medium stone with rounded side
And you will need time.

Now let's get started

Step 1: Making the Blade

First we need a blade. For this you will grab the rounded stone you collected. And the smaller stone, then place it on your thigh or a flat surface and proceed to hit it on the edges with the rounded rock being sure to follow through with your hits.

Step 2: Making the Hilt

First you need to find a stick that fits the base of your blade, and one tht is sturdy but you can carve into.

Once you have your stick saw off the ends to make the hilt to your desired length.

After carve a v shaped indent about 1incg lengthwise into the hilt and 1/2-3/4 of the width deep. You can later adjust this indent to support the knife blade

Step 3: Assemble the Blade

Assemble the blade into the v shaped crevice. Note that ya recommended you use rope or thread to tie on the blade and give it support.
