Ever since I made my first ninja throwing star in metal shop class, I’ve always wanted to make my own knife. But I was put off by the notion of having to acquire the furnace, anvil, leather apron, and handlebar mustache requisite for forging a proper tempered blade.

7″ steel circular saw blade new, or recycle an old one Dremel Rotary Tool with metal cut-off wheel, grinding stone, wire brush, polishing wheel and polishing compound Drill and 3/16″ drill bit Cardboard and pencil to draw a pattern Permanent marker Scissors Small metal file Clamps Safety goggles Paracord (4′) and plastic cord ends I got both from countycomm.com
