Knife making

Is there anyone in here that makes custom knives? Looking to get into it, and was just wanting to check out someone's set up and process. Not looking to make a career out of it or steal business. Just wanting a little guidance.

sheepy2 OK

I don't want to hijack your thread but years ago I also thought about trying to make my own knives. I even bought a used "kit" from someone, possibly on this site. Now with social distancing I may go look for it. I think YouTube may have some helpful tutorials on this. Good luck.

it's not that hard, nor does it take many tools to make a useable knife, or even something that you can use and be proud that you made it, but to make a really nice knife takes talent, time, and a bit of artistic flair

When off work waiting to start this new gig, I got into it, made several knives, really enjoyed it, if you can change an alternator or build a picture frame, you can make a fixed blade knife with some basic tools and some time.
