Among the many things one can do with pasta, it’s a safe bet that turning it into a potentially lethal weapon likely isn’t one of them. 
Japanese Youtuber “Kiwami Japan”, whose channel is dedicated to making amazing things with knives, recently published a video showing his intricate process of making a knife out of the Italian food staple.
Kiwami began his 14-minute demonstration by setting up a wooden frame with some stainless steel woven mesh sheet.
Then, he turned packet of dried pasta into a fine powder, which he sieved carefully.
Next, he mixed the powder with water in a saucepan, kneading it deliberately for consistency.
He then sealed the pasta dough inside a Ziploc plastic bag before making an outline of a knife out of it.
It was traced, cut out, heated in a microwave, and then set to dry for a week inside the earlier prepared wooden/steel frame.
The hardened pasta knife mold was then subjected to meticulous shaping and sharpening using a variety of whetstones.
To test his new pasta knife, Kiwami began slicing through tomatoes and cardboard boxes.

Kiwani has been entertaining his followers for about a year now with his amazing knife-making skills. He also made headlines back in December for creating a knife out of a Japanese fish.
