Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools
2: angle grinder (with cutting and sanding disc)
4: safety glasses
6: gorilla glue
Step 2: Materials
1: wood (or any other kind of handle material)
3: leather (or any other kind of spacer)
Step 3: Rough Draft
draw out what you want your knife to look like on the steel. make sure to include the tang (part of knife that goes inside the handle)
Step 4: Rough Cut-out
clamp your steel in a vice, or to the table. Then use the cutting disc for the angle grinder on the steel.
Step 5: Sand the Steel
after you cut out the blade, it's gonna look pretty crappy. so use the sanding disc for the angle grinder on the steel.
Step 6: Attach Handle
gorilla glue the handle material into the tang. start with a spacer then attach the handle. make sure you using gorilla glue, not super glue. gorilla glue expands when it dries, to hold the handle on.
Step 7: Let the Glue Dry
place the knife blade side up under somthing heavy, like a shelf. and wait.....
Step 8: Final Sand
smoothen out the knife for the final time to make it look good.
Step 9: DONE-SKIZZLE!
your done! now brag that knife around to your buddies, and maybe try to sell it!
