Pretty cool alright...but for that much time and effort my $35 CRKT is a bargain!

Yup.....rebar is mostly cheap crap steel....

Neat video tho....

I've never tried to heat treat any rebar. I wonder how hard you could get it and if it would harden enough to hold an edge?

He was chopping wood after he shaved with it....but that's my big question too.....I'd be real curious how well the edge holds up. I don't think it would very well..... 2cents

I like the music. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the soundtrack?

I don't think it would hold an edge for very long either.

A variety of rebar lengths and diameters are available, but there are only six common types of rebar: European (a carbon, manganese, silicon, etc. alloy); carbon steel (basic “black” rebar); galvanized; epoxy coated; glass-fiber-reinforced-polymer (GFRP); and stainless steel. The different types of rebar each unique strengths and weaknesses.

Types of Rebar

European Rebar

The strength of European rebar is its cost. Made principally of manganese, European rebar is the least resistant type of rebar with respect to bending. While easy to work with, it is generally not recommended for use in areas that experience earthquakes nor for projects that require substantial structural integrity from its rebar.

Carbon Steel Rebar

The most common rebar, “black” bar is used on every type and scale of project with few exceptions. The biggest weakness of black rebar is that it corrodes. When rebar corrodes, it expands cracking and breaking the concrete around it. For situations in which the rebar might be exposed to humidity or water saturation, there are better options than black rebar. However, with respect to is value/tensile strength ratio, black rebar is the best rebar available.

Epoxy-Coated Rebar

Epoxy-coated rebar is black rebar with an epoxy coat. It has the same textile strength, but is 70 to 1,700 times more resistant to corrosion. However, the epoxy coating is incredibly delicate. The greater the damage to the coating, the less resistant to corrosion.

Galvanized Rebar

Galvanized rebar is only forty times more resistant to corrosion than black rebar, but it is more difficult to damage the coating of galvanized rebar. In that respect, it has more value than epoxy-coated rebar. However, it is about 40% more expensive than epoxy-coated rebar.

Glass-Fiber-Reinforced-Polymer (GFRP)

GFRP is a composite much like carbon fiber. As a result, field bends are not permitted when using GFRP. However, it will not corrode, period. In that respect, GFRP is an unparalleled concrete reinforcement bar. While it costs ten times as much as epoxy coated rebar per pound, it is extremely light, so the cost is only about double when considering talking linear feet.

Stainless Steel Rebar

Stainless steel rebar is the most expensive reinforcing bar available, about eight times the price of epoxy-coated rebar. It is also the best rebar available for most projects. However, using stainless steel in all but the most unique of circumstances is often overkill. But, for those who have a reason to use it, stainless steel rebar 1,500 times more resistant to corrosion than black bar; it is more resistant to damage than any of the other corrosive-resistant or corrosive-proof types or rebar; and it can be bent in the field.

Rebar has enough carbon in it and is hard enough, I won't cut it with a bandsaw. Not long lasting blade hardness hard, I bet.

You can make almost anything out of anything. But, what’s the point of making a cutting/chopping tool out of rebar, files, horseshoes, springs... all of which are usually unknown types of steel? Every steel has a specific heat treat process and that’s not possible to implement when you don’t know the type of steel you’re working with.

10 series high carbon steel makes an excellent knife and its price is almost neglible. So again, what’s the point of making a knife or hatchet from unknown materials? Because you CAN do something funky does not mean you SHOULD. Am I missing something?

I am sure that you are correct, but I liked it anyways.

It is a novelty, I have several knives that are made of rebar, 2 made out of railroad spikes, and some made from old wrenches. Will they cut, yes, will they stay sharp, I don't care, I got all but one as gifts, that one I bought the winning raffle ticket.
