Upcycling is the act of reusing unwanted products or waste to make something new and intriguing. Steve Miller of Miller Knives has made a YouTube career out of transforming found objects into interesting knives.

I honestly think one of his most recent videos features his best creation yet.

Miller acquired an old rabbit trap that was not only rusted beyond repair but illegal to use in Australia. So, he decided to turn it into a knife.

Check it out:

The outcome of the project is a beautiful and almost steampunk take on the old trench knife.

The great thing about Miller’s videos is that they don’t waste your time with unnecessary commentary or show every single detail. So, in just over 3 minutes, you can see Miller turn the rabbit trap into a knife.

If you haven’t done so yet, I recommend subscribing to Miller Knives on YouTube.
