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.
