    Has any body ever made ther own knife? I did. A friend of the family gave me a box of parts and it was a really nice stainless steel blade and some brass for makeing a cross-guard. After much fileing and pounding, I was able to fit the cross-guard on and prepare for makeing the handle. I used standard para-cord with a series of lashes and braides tied off with a regular knot on the end. The blade steel was so hard that I had to use and electric grinder to get an edge on it. After that, I used a series of course,mediun and fine diamond sharpeners. Finally I used good old Arkansas to smooth it out and it can cut a paper towel without tearing it. Hope to use it on a deer soon. Next project is to make a leather sheath and I may replace the para cord with leather cord. (The picture is in my profile.)

    I made a few the easy way. Bought some blade blanks, the brass studs, shaped the blades, and made my own handles. Pretty cool.
