There is something so alluring about making your own knives. It seems like something that I will have to do before I die. What you will notice about this article is just how easy pictures make this process look. Its a strange thing when it comes to DIY. I guess it has to do with the fact that pictures don’t capture the actual work that goes into things like filing and sanding. All that said, this project is very possible if you have the right tools.
You will enjoy watching the process take shape. When the initial blade is cut out of the saw blade you will see it is a haggard mess. To watch the blade take shape and the beautiful handle as well gives you an appreciation for the process. We always see the finished product but its cool to see the whole process.
