Lot's of folks lately making knives, does buying a blank, and attaching a handle define making a knife? Still looks decent enough

Nice for a first knife that. It would be good to get more folks having a go and posting up their pics.

Not clear if it was a blank Ricky used or not. "It's from 4mm o1 tool steel, cheap and widely available"

 

If so a blank is a good way to get a taste for knife making so not to be discouraged. After all a lot of production knife makers revert to laser/ water cut blanks all be it to their own design. ;)

Give it a go W.K if you search around on the Google-net you can pick of a fairly cheap 01 blank ...plenty on Hennie https://www.heinnie....result/?q=blank

 

You end up with a decent blade for not much cash, a lot of time & satisfaction.

If you want a raw ground bit of stock GFS is good. https://www.groundflatstock.com/

You can also find GFS on fleabay.
