    I want to make a knife

    I'm going to set up my work bench this weekend and organize all my tools. I've been watching a bunch of youtube videos trying to learn as much as possible.

    I'm going to pick up a bench grinder this weekend and try to pull something together.

    I have made a few. The one I liked best came from an old circular saw blade.

        In my upcoming knife photos thread, I will have some that I made from old industrial hack saw blades. They aren't perfect, but It was fun making them.

          I want to make a kitchen knife. Like an 8" chopper.

            I will look for pics of the one I made. It turned out pretty good for a beginner's try

              I probably need to keep on the look out for a belt sander by the looks of it.

                You never struck me as a "work bench and tools" kind of guy.

                          Everyone wants to be Shatner. He is everywhere, and done everyone, a true wideshaft. Not that other...noodle guy.

                            Leaf springs are good, can get them cheap too.
                            This sig didn't cost me any money.

                              I found a place that sells 1/8"x2"x18" carbon steel blanks for $6 each.

                              Right now I'm trying to understand the process of hardening. I see some guys quench their stuff in oil, then I see some people send their blades out to be hardened. I'm under the impression those are just two different techniques for the same result more or less? Anyways, I found a local place that can harden things pretty cheaply.
