I posted pictures of this little knife on Randy's Post but thought I would do a separate one.

It's just a hacksaw blade cut with the dremel cutting wheel to a point on both ends. Shove one end into one cork and sharpen the other end. I left the teeth on the end that goes into the cork handle to keep it from pulling out easily.

What is that knifes primary purpose? It looks like it would be good for scoring/marking cutting lines.

Not a bad idea. How long is the blade?
The blade showing is a little under 1 ¼ inches long. I used a short foam plastic cork for the sharp end and a 1 ¾ inch natural cork for the handle. The hacksaw blade overall length is about 2 ¾ inches long.

The knife has no specific purpose but I like to keep it around to open packages, cut tape and other miscellaneous things.

Nice recycling.
I cut a metal cutting band saw blade into 3 inch lengths when I was making carving knives. Whenever I had time or got tired of carving I would grind one of the pieces into different shapes and sharpen it. Since I was using the corks for blade protectors, it was easy enough to stick the other end into a cork and use it as a handle.
