If you happen to have a stockpile of fish hooks you don’t use anymore, melting them down into a new knife is easier than you might think.
Video description from Green Beetle YouTube channel:
Canister steel opens up a world of impossibilities. Here a knife is made from thousands of fish hooks and 1084 powder. An astute viewer has pointed out the hazards of putting zinc (white-out) in a forge – and other viewers have pointed out white-out is titanium oxide and not zinc. Heating a sealed container is dangerous as it could explode. This knife was a gift. The fish hooks were purchased on eBay for about 1.2 cents each.
