    Default Guy Turning a $5 Machete Into Two Knives (Video)

    My apologies if this was already posted here but I ran across this video this morning and really enjoyed it.
    There's nothing groundbreaking here but I really liked the presentation of the process and was impressed with the final product.

    Of course there are knife makers here that do so much better and can probably point to a lot of mistakes but I liked the way this made it look like anyone could do this. I picked up a 5 pack of Latin machetes for something like $15 from Sportsman's Guide last year that would make great candidates, especially considering that some of them are ridiculously long.


    Anyway, here's the video...

    I would do spark test to see if enough carbon in steel to make it worth while.

    Sweet... It's the backyard bowyer guy! Loved seeing him turning PVC pipes into recurves and now a how-to on making knives
