knifemaking... you can do it!
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:50:03 AM »
i posted on my youtube channel a knifemaking series, focusing on using simple (improvised) tools. you don't need fancy tools to make a decent knife, you need the will to do it. here's "the evidence":



...and here's the "making of" (all 5 episodes):






my point? everybody can do it (or, at least, it's worth to try)!

(p.s.: can anybody please teach me how to use the "" thing?)

I think you will need to remove the "s" from the "https" portion of your links. I'll try to fix them for you.

i'm glad that you like it - it turned out ok... plus, it was sooo pleasant to work with minimal tools! once in a while, it's a very good exercise to just forget about the grinder - it's not very productive, but it's rewarding in other ways: you can work at a slower pace (which gives you time to ponder about every step) and it gives you a better understanding of blade geometry.

That turned out to be a great knife!
