Step 1: Remove the Paint

i used a file and a knife(witch broke:'-[ ) and all i did was scrape the paint off (it was difficult)

Step 2: Make a Paper Cutout

1. draw out your desired blade design
2. cut the piece out
3. glue it onto the blade i used thick paint(it was all i had on my computer desk)

Step 3: Spray the Blade With Paint

i used paint to mark the stencil but you can use a marker

Step 4: Grind the Shape

use anything you have to grind/file this down
i would rather have used files but for some reason i couldn't find them

carefully grind the rough shape on the coarse wheel than refine it on the fine wheel

Step 5: Sharpening

use a file or stone to sharpen it and to finish it all off use emery cloth to polish it

Step 6: Handle

To make the handle i just wound cord around it and than tied it through the hole in the end.

    Yeah i know but i was feeling lazy at that time and all i had at my workbench/desk was a file and a knife, after i did it i noticed that it would have taken less effort to just go downstairs and grind it off.

    Or just use an old, used blades because the paint rubs off after the first use. Or heat it up with a mapp/propane torch to burn it off.

    I think keeping the teeth is a good idea, not just for visual effect. Having teeth turns your blade from a knife, into a multipurpose tool, and saves the awkward sharpening you have to do with a blade that has serrations near the handle. Nice Instructable, too.

    I have been making these for a LONG time. I got the how to from M40. Just google "fishwolf SBK" and you will see them. Also I will try and post a pic of mine here. This one I ground the saw teeth off of for thumb jimping.

    you can save a lot of work scraping paint. Just use a well used blade, the paint will all be worn off. Plus you can pick it up free at any construction site.
