A dagger can be defined as a long knife, and it can contain a double-edged blade, and daggers are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs, and many people prefer to have a dagger at home, but the problem is that it is expensive sometimes, and in this article we will review a group One of the steps through which a dagger can be made at home, but before starting it is necessary to note that all precautions must be taken while making the dagger.

1. Make a model with the dimensions to be made of the dagger

The first step is to make a model of the dagger to be made, by drawing a dagger on a sheet of paper with the dimensions to be made of the dagger, and this step, despite its simplicity, is very necessary, and it will shorten us a lot of time, and it is necessary to take into account the drawing accurately without drawing extras, Or any other additions, and there are some engineering programs that help to draw this type of models, so they can be used, and then this model can be cut.

2. Sharpening the steel used

After drawing the pattern to be made for the dagger, the steel must be sharpened with a special tool, and this step is necessary; Because the steel is covered from the top with a layer of oxide, in order to protect it from rust, but the problem is that this layer is stronger than the steel itself, and it will cause a lot of fatigue if not disposed of, and it is necessary to take care and caution, and adhere to all safety instructions when sharpening steel, It is not recommended to do this in the absence of experience or knowledge in this matter, but a specialized person must be sought for assistance.

3. Cut the steel according to the model

In this step, the dagger model can be placed on the steel, and the drawing on the steel with a pencil or colored pen; To know the places to be cut from the steel until it becomes a mirror image of the model, but you must pay attention in this step; Any error while matching the model to the steel can affect the shape of the dagger, becoming irregular and deformed.

4. Start cutting steel

In this step, the steel must be cut to become an exact copy of the drawn model, using a special steel-cutting tool, but this step is also dangerous, and all safety measures must be taken when applying them, with the wearing of special gloves, and the help of a person specialized in separating the steel in the event that it is not You have knowledge in this field, and it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the sides of the dagger are completely flat, and the angle between the blades of the dagger and the arm is 90 degrees, and these dimensions are necessary to maintain the balance and straightness of the dagger during its use.

5. Making a handle for the dagger

A handle for the dagger can be made by following these steps:
  • Bring two pieces of wood, and be aware that the wood is of a hard type such as oak, maple, or cherry, and the wood must be resistant to moisture and rot, so you must pay attention to these conditions when choosing wood pieces.
  • Cut the wooden pieces so that their length is proportional to the length of the handle of the dagger, as these wooden pieces will be fixed from the top and bottom to become an arm of the dagger.
  • place two points on top of the wooden blocks; A point below the dagger, and a point above the dagger, so that these points lie on the center line of the dagger.
  • Drill holes on the points drawn on the wood with a drill. The purpose of this is to fix the wood pieces with the dagger arm, and it is necessary to take all safety measures when using the drill; Because it can sometimes be harmful if not used properly.
  • Fixing the two pieces of wood with the dagger using copper pins, as these pins must be placed through the holes made with the drill, and then hammer these pins from the upper side and the lower side to ensure their fixation. That the screws from the back do not cause any harm or damage in the event that a sharp part of them appears.
  • Sanding the wood, by rubbing it with coarse sandpaper of size 40 or 80, and then switching it to fine sandpaper of size 100 or 120, and then rubbing it with finer sandpaper of size 220, and this is necessary; Because the handle of the dagger, if it is rough, is difficult to handle, and may cause harm to the hands, and some electric tools can be used for sanding, but care and caution must be taken when using this tool, and in the absence of any experience in dealing with it, manual sanding methods can be used instead of It fulfills the need, too.
