Needed a knife so I made one


Recommended Posts

 I wanted to make a marking knife for doing woodworking.  I figured it would come in handy for working on my models as well. The blade is a broken bi-metal blade off of an old sawzall.  I made the handle of some scrap oak that I had in the garage.  It’s good and sharp right now, let’s see how well the blade Holds up.

Hi Antonio, that looks like a good design for modelling purposes.  I have putting making a couple off for some time but this may motivate me :)  Did you anneal the metal at all?

 

cheers

Nice looking knife.  I've never considered making a knife but seeing yours has me interested in trying.
