Knife Making

Video: Jimmy DiResta makes a machete from a reclaimed saw

I am running a little behind on my review of the First Edge 5050. It will be out today, but I felt that you all might enjoy this more than crickets this morning. Jimmy DiResta is the king of reclaimed tools, and his videos are always well produced. In this one he takes an old crosscut saw that was in pretty rough shape and turned it into a pretty nice looking machete.

While I am jealous of both DiResta’s skills as well as his extensive shop, one does not need to turn their own pins on a metal lathe to do this.

If you are really timewasting, check out Jimmy’s knife collection. He has some pretty sweet pieces.
