★ A Simplified Guide to Knife Making ★
Nearly every adult uses a knife almost every day. If not at work, then in gatherings and preparation of food.
But how many knives does one see that are genuine works of loving craftsmanship?
Very few I must say, if any.
Knife-making may strike you as a curious endeavor. With so many good knives available, you might ask yourself, why would anyone want to make one by hand? This question struck my mind when a close friend who worked in the office next to mine began talking to me about the knives he was making.
Almost every day, he would work the word ‘knife’ into at least one or two conversations. His desk right next to mine always had samples of his work, used as letter openers and paperweights. I was surprised by the uniqueness of those handmade knives. They were sleek and easy to use! Handmade knives have a more mellow and personal look than commercial knives. You need not have a tremendous amount of experience in metal or woodworking to make exquisite knives!
