Eat your heart out Bear Grills!
(more pics coming soon)
Features include:
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

Vitamin list:
a little sheet metal screw to secure the blade retainer
4 utility blades
3 feet of paracord or similar
mini-bic lighter

If you want to remix this project, I suggest finding a way to integrate a whistle and/or compass into the sheath.


Print it.
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.

same for me the base really screwed me up. great design though

Great project! I was wondering if you could upload a version without the print bases. The print bases are messing with the slicing for me. Also, solidworks file seems to only have included the main part of the knife.

I did a remix for the body only...used another remix where the support disk was removed, then I just flipped it on it's side.

This should be more bed friendly

cool. thanks for your effort!

Had an error once about 90% of the build was complete and the Bot would not complete the build. Has anyone else had an issue like this with this design? ~using MakerBot Replicator 2
