For anyone interested in knifemaking - even if you have never worked with metal before - this straightforward beginner’s guide shows you how to create your own full-tang and hidden-tang knives. To familiarize you with the craft before you begin a project, the authors provide in-depth explanations that cover the basics of knives as well as the required tools for making them, and describe how to select blade steel and material to make a handle.
Clear step-by-step instructions for both knife projects are supplemented with over 200 detailed color photos, from designing the knife on paper and preparing the steel blank for the blade to filing and refining the blade’s edge before creating and attaching the handle. Spiral bound to lie flat while you work, this is a practical reference.
