Simple Knife making Welcome to Simple Knife Making! I’m Nick, and I’ll be your guide as we jump into some of the basics of making your own knives. Before we get started, here’s a little bit about myself and how to get the most out of this book.

I built my first knife over nine years ago. It was crude and extremely ugly, cut and ground from an old rusted butcher’s knife. That knife was a bit of a stepping stone for me, a pivotal moment in my life.

I had always loved the idea of building things with my hands, of creating beautiful and functional works of art. Yet I always felt as if it was out of my reach. I couldn’t afford the right tools or find the right steel.

I really felt like I didn’t have the right anything. It was at that point I decided to make do with what I had, even though I didn’t have any experience. It wasn’t a beautiful or graceful start, but it was a start.

Even as I built it, I knew that first knife was poor for many reasons. I had read several books, watched countless videos, watched many great knife makers at work. I had even handled lots of knives. The problem was that while I knew all these things, I had no idea how to translate that to making a knife.
