I posted a comment about making your gear from raw materials. It wouldn’t be proper if I didn’t back that up with something I made from scratch.
This is my knife that I made from some shit I bought at home depot, some silver and stones (and mastodon ivory) I got from my ancient jewelry design class teacher.
It’s not pro, but I think it’s decent for a first try and making something by hand is one of the best feelings I’ve experienced, I had a bunch of metal, wood and rocks, I turned it into something nobody else on the planet has. Try it out.

Primitive knife knapped from fiber glass
Knapping is the art and tech of creating a knife or axe or some other pointy object by chipping away at some hard and brittle substance such as flint to create a sharp edge. It’s how your great-great-times 10-grandfather the cavemen created arrowheads and shit to kill dinosaurs. Mike Cook of Portland, Michigan is a master knapper with a k, unlike myself who is a master napper with an n and he created this knife using primitive techniques with fiber optic glass. Via
