Want to make a couple knifes
« on: January 03, 2015, 11:23:53 AM »
Ok, where to start and how hard is it to make a knife?
Where do you get blades, woods, and what all tools are needed to make a knife. Would like to make my boys a knife and just want to tinker with it some.
Thanks,
Brian

Google "Jantz Supply" and or "Knife and Gun Finishing Supply"..  Both sell everything you need to get started.  I would buy a blade annd learn to finish the blade into a knife and make a sheath.  See if you like to do the finish work.  In buying a finished blade you get what you pay for in most cases.
