(more pics coming soon)
standard utility knife blades (with 3 spares stored in handle)
paracord wrapping on handle
Handle slotted to fit to a Mini-Bic lighter
Neck sheath w/ lanyard
a little sheet metal screw to secure the blade retainer
4 utility blades
3 feet of paracord or similar
If you want to remix this project, I suggest finding a way to integrate a whistle and/or compass into the sheath.
trim off the round feet
fit a blade into the slot and press the blade retainer into place.
Secure it with a little sheet metal screw, using the back of a spare blade to twist the screw into place.
Fit the lighter and spare blades into place.
Wrap the handle with 12" of electrical or duct tape (handy stuff!)
Wrap the handle with 3 feet of parachute cord.
*Test fit the neck sheath. Use your new knife to trim the snap-on retention tabs to fine-tune the fit.
