Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
you will need
1 roll of electric tape
a small block of wood
a dremel multi-max( is helpful)
a file (to shape the blade)
a pen or pencil
and a table router
Step 2: Cut Block to Size and Draw Outline
you will need to cut the block to size and draw
the design of your knife
(It can be as simple or as complex as you want.)I made mine simple as
you can see
Step 3: Begining the Carving Process
use your jigsaw carefully to begin to cut your hilt out like the picture below
Step 4: Cutting Out the Handle
cut out the handle like in the picture
Step 5: Fillet the Handle
using the dremel multi-max cut a little strip off the sides of the handle to make more detail
Step 6: Begining to Carve the Blade
after shaving a strip off again with the multi-max on both sides of the blade you should have something like the picture below
Step 7: Finishing Up
use a file to make a false edge and router the handle to make it round with a rounding bit.
After that use the electric tape to wrap the handle ( So you don't get wood splinters in your hand after all.)
then you are done.
