I rudely did not address the effort for the thread. I apologize fullauto, I have disciplined my keyboard.

Using such a small piece of steel for your first attempt, I have to say is ambitious. I have never made a "real" knife, just fooling around as a kid, trying to sharpen leaf springs and such.

But I did spend a day at a "blacksmith's" forge watching as he was making stuff for an upcoming Rennie Faire and nothing he worked was small or intricate.

I would take the advice of the noble PureHavoc, he won't steer you wrong.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Thanks, I may try with a file, or some extra low end blades like tax force, and I may get some blanks.

Using this stilleto blade, plan on serrating the top.

Yea what they said, use experience, get more tools, start over, do it again and again and again!

I'm glad you have a sense of humor and rolled with it. Keep up the work and keep us posted on your progress on handmade blades.

I have made several that have served as marking guage blades, wood screw box thread cutters and such, but have never gone through the hardening process yet. I am collecting the parts for my forge. http://www.cianperez.com/Wood/WoodDocs/Wood_How_To/INDEX_How_To_pages/PatrickRock_BuildingBlacksmithForge.htm

I have containers for the quenching process, anvil, hammers, tongs.
Got all the tools for shaping, but alas, it is lost in my 40,000 item todo list.

Thanks, I may be going to home depot tonight to get some metal and a replacement hack saw blade, I do have a concern with making the handles so I may have to look at some of the knife making threads here on FTF.

Buy yourself a good Nicholson file to replace your old one.

(Your old one should be a great starting blank).

Would sheet metal work?
