I have that style of blade on one of my Gerber multi tools, and it so easy to sharpen and maintain.

Today's project. A hand forged blade from a 200 year old peace of sawmill steel.

I watched YouTube a lot. And go to knife makers meetings. If you find someone who makes nice knives ask lots of questions most knife makers are eager to share what they know.

Lots of hand sanding to go on the handle and then put the final edge on it.
