The one hour knife

I wondered if I could make a cutting tool in a very short space of time, so using an old industrial hacksaw blade and a dremel multi-tool I set to work. First was to trim off the teeth of the edge, then shape the blade then grind the edge using the small sanding drum. It is very rough and ready and not at all pretty but in total it took 47 minutes to make and holds a wicked edge as the steel was already hardened and tempered..


  1. Cheating!;-) Anyway, I like that, for it shows what can be done with very little equipment.Great post!

  2. For less than an hour that is a good looking knife,but even better its a user.

    Nice work Bro.
