Knife making

Recommended Posts

I have customised several blades now, and getting better after each one. I'm a bit lucky, as i can do a lot of the work at work in my breaks and my mate is a knifemaker and he recently let me borrow some of his sanding gear, which also saved lots of time and effort, but it can all be easily done with files and sandpaper.

I will put a few links up to articles i did on another site, as it would take me ages to put it all on here again. I hope you can see it all ok.

Its a good feeling to use a knife you have done yourself,- but yes finding the time is not so easy at times. Well worth it though, if you have a go.
