THE BEST Knives

Making a “Bolt” Dagger

Making a “Bolt” Dagger

Cut from a flat plate of steel, Miller Knives‘ deadly jagged dagger isn’t exactly the most traditional form of metalsmithing we’ve seen, but the resulting weapon is too awesome not to share, and we’re guessing it would be nearly impossible to pull of using a forging process.

This compact pocket knife is not only great for carving and slicing. Its pointed tip makes it great for prying, opening cans and even working on flat-head screws. Its handle provides excellent grip and has a jimp to prevent your index finger from slipping.

Making a Knife from Tape

Making a Knife from Batteries

Making a Knife from Batteries

Ripping apart old batteries can be dangerous, but that didn’t stop shurap from tearing into a bunch of them in search of usable metal. He then fused the bits together with some steel blades, and crafted a sweet damascus knife with a handle made from a MagLite.

Spinning Belt of Knives

Spinning Belt of Knives

Colin Furze shows off an invention so insane that we wouldn’t want to be within 1000 feet when it spins up. Apparently for no reason other than to outdo Simone Giertz’s salad chopping robot, he built a wearable belt that rapidly spins knives around his waist. It draws blood at 9:57.
