How To Make A Karambit Out Of A 21mm Wrench

ZNA Productions just made this video a few days ago showing you how to make a really sharp Karambit out of a 21mm wrench. Now obviously you could make a smaller or larger one, he just chose a 21mm. I personally like the smaller versions of this. Before anyone wants to start trolling this guy keep in mind he isn’t a master blacksmith with 20 years of knife making – but with that being said, he still makes a pretty alright knife. If nothing else at least you get a general Idea. Maybe you want one of these but you don’t want to make your own – you can get you one here.  After this check out how to make a pretty neat 45lb slingbow for less than five bucks. Be sure to follow Man Stuff on Google+.

This is a traditional Karambit

The karambit is believed to have originated among the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra where, according to folklore, it was inspired by the claws of big cats. As with most weapons of the region, it was originally an agricultural implement designed to rake roots, gather threshing and plant rice. As it was weaponised, the blade became more curved to maximize cutting potential. Through Indonesia’s trade network and close contact with neighboring countries, the knife was eventually dispersed through what are now Cambodia,Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and the Philippines. Via – Wikipedia

    Very impressive. Ive been a fan of Karambits and user for years. I like how you made that out of a wrench. You’d be a forse to be reconned with if you had a milling machine and some propper blade grinding tools! I see the next Gill Hibben. Stay with it, that was some nice work!
