I was cleaning around the shop and found an old broken garden scissors along the wooden pieces. So, I thought to make a knife from scissors’ blade and handle from scrap wood. First thing I had to do was scissors blade restoration and making a knife out of it afterwards.
Officially this is my first knife build project and please note that this is not ‘how to make a knife’ post or video! Further, depending on your feedback I might make more of knife making videos in future. Let me know what you think, thank you!

Restoring scissors’ blade first.
Firstly I disassembled the scissors. Then I sanded the blade for a while one blade to get this shiny look below. Also I sharpened the blade’s edge.
Next step was to start making and shaping the wooden handle. I did that by drawing the shape, cutting with hand saw and glued together. After drying I used file to flatten the wood and got this!
Then I cut a groove for the blade and drilled it for brass peens. Furthermore I was testing fit of the blade and new handle.
After testing the fit, I marked and chamfer all edges on the handle. I was really pleased to see the result after doing this.
Before I started assembling I wanted to polish the blade and make it really to pop out. On the picture below is nice and smooth handle and polished blade.
Finally assembling and showing you guys the result. Even though this was my first knife making project, I think it came out alright.
Thank you a big time for checking out this post!
