CATERPILLAR    534

Made this knife out of an old saw blade and some flat stock and copper pieces. Cool history about those flat bar and thick copper the bar is for a power pole and the pole has since rotted away and also the copper is the grounding wire on power poles. I wanted to kind of base it off of Rambo knife and I am pretty happy with it. I sharpied the shape on the saw blade and cut it out with my cordless makita grinder and used a flap wheel to get it so shinny it probably took 3-4 hours and I sprayed a clear coat on it . I kept trying to decide on handles and tryed this one and love it . also left a tooth on the back as a window breaker.

I can't remember if Rambo ever threw his knife at anybody. I remember he had a bow with explosive arrows.

That's really neat Trevor! Never would have thought about making a knife from a saw blade...did you laminate layers together for thickness?

I'm surprised the blade is rigid enough at single thickness. Must be one hell of a saw blade to be thick enough to keep it from being too flexible.
