With several years of bladesmithing, starting completely from scratch with the most basic and crude tools imaginable, I’ve learned tips and tricks, both taught and figured out myself, to get tools to begin making knives, all with a very low budget. Below are published weekly articles on the different tools required for bladesmithing, with what makes that tool effective, how to build it, or where to get it.
These guides are not blind how-to’s, along with showing how to build or find a given tool, I explain the principles behind them. What makes each tool effective. How you can use the tool to create the highest quality knives on the market today.
Remember, it is not the price of the tools used. It’s the work, time, and commitment you put into them that make the results. Perfect is the only good enough.
