I want to make myself a hunting knife and thought this would be a good place to ask where to start. What books would be good to read ect. I have access to a manual mill and contacts at a heat treat company who could handle that for me. Beyond that what should i do to give it a go? Phone Post 3.0

Better than any wall of text I can type up. This is the guy that got me into it. Jakub is an amazing bladesmith.

And that overly dramatic turn toward the camera in the beginning is fucking priceless.

It's like having Aleksander Emelianenko teach you. Should keep your attention.

Not as of yet. My shop is a warzone. OSHA would have a fit if they came by. :/

I have gone on plenty of knifemaking rants on here though. :) Phone Post

I take it the skinning hatchet arrived!

Meant to tell you, I'm eventually gonna design a pack-carry system for that model. Either teklok or molle lock for ease of use. Whenever I do, ill be asking you to ship yours back to me to get fitted for one. No charge. Phone Post

Thanks man, ill buy that too. His name is something goddard, i read his "wonders of knife making" this morning. Good read but honestly the metallurgy information got way to technical in a hurry. Im going to hunt and see what if can find about someone breaking down the heat treat process really clearly for me. I was planning on just sending it off but mr goddard makes a very strong case for having a softer spine and it seems like id be kind of half assing it if i didnt try to do it right. I think ill order enough steel for a half dozen knives so i can have plenty of material to screw it up a few times and learn the process better.

I apreciate you being willing to talk to me about it, i mean no disrepect by trying to make my own here. I just like to learn a new skill every few months (or at least learn enough to respect the craftsmen who actually master a craft). Ten years in a machine shop working with steel has given me a deep apreciation for other types of craftsmanship. Phone Post 3.0
