    Save yourself 13 minutes: To make a bamboo knife, break a piece of bamboo and look for a sharp edge. Ta da!

    That would be a good idea for a reality TV show “naked and afraid and trying to keep Elmer alive”.

    Elmer is nice, he’s filming you

    Wouldn’t it be more effective to go for a stone knife, if you really needed one?

      • NecroBanana
      • June 27, 2016

      If you can’t find any good knappable stone around and can’t find any glass, this can be a good, dirty knife.

    use the rough knife as a wedge to make a finer knife

    what about knapping over a bamboo knife?

    • Qwerty Poiuyt
    • August 30, 2016

    For your shoulder problem go to a massage therapist and ask for some fascial tissue work (skin rolling) on your arm, back and pec. Many times that can fix major pain problems. Much cheaper, and less invasive, than getting cut open too.

    another good reason to make a bamboo knife is so you can conserve your proper metal knife.

    maybe use the bamboo one for smaller things, and use the metal one for something that you would REALLY need a sharp knife.
