This karambit was made of an old saw blade, I didnt hardened the steel but its gonna be used a lot so… for the handle I choosed mahogany and I decided to use two bolts for the pins and a piece of pine, the pine really stands out in the middle of the mahogany, next time im planing to use only wood

OK, I have to say, that is sharp, and very good looking too.
What kind of wood will you use on your next one?

I normally use pine, but maybe I’ll experiment with olive wood or a few logs from Shrubs of my garden :D

As Tony says, you should join the swap, Helder. An olive handle would look wonderful.

Nice blade. I am just getting started. I have made 4 krabits 2 Bowie’s a couple of hunting knives. I made 9 total now.

theses are my krambits

I hope hope you stick with it. I find it to be very rewarding. Heat treat is very simple. Heat blade so magnet won’t stick. It needs to be 50 degrees hoter than when a magnet don’t stick. People say you need a certain kind of oil from kitchen oil to hydraulic fluid. I use my oil from last oil change. Works great. I have chopped all the way through a 4×4 with my big Bowie knife and it was still Sharp enough to shave. No edge damage. Unless it’s stainless heat treat iis easy.

This is my latest and best to date so far.

My first one wE done with a disk sander and a drum sander. I quickly decided I need a 2×72grinder. I picked up a used treadmill and made I grinder using the motor and electronics. I have about 50bucks in parts. Thats a 6in platen with skateboard wheels and a 8in contact wheel from the local tractor supply.

I would like to see more. Keep at it.

Have your say...
