    Anyone else into knife making? I've got so many hobbies and projects but just started my first knife build. I'll try to upload pictures of it tonight.

    I've made some, but it's been quite a few years.

    You might take a look at Texas knifemaker's Supply on the 'net-
    they sell complete kits for those who can't find parts, but they
    also sell just parts: bolsters, blades,scales etc as well as tools.
    [Wish I worked there!]

    is their website.

    Made a couple just to learn how- not "forged in the light of a full moon tempered with the tears of a unicorn" kind of stuff- simple stock removal, mainly O-1 carbon steel. But I did make a couple using worn Chrome Moly power hacksaw blades. YOWZAH! If you ever want to make a blade that can whack the end off a railroad rail, that be the stuff. But do not even THINK about drilling the tang to attach scales- not gonna happen.

    I have made and sold hundreds of custom, handmade knives. I specialize in hidden tang knives featuring, solid, elk or deer antler handles. I use both steel and flint knapped obsidian blades. You can see examples of my work at Log In | Facebook. Or, go to my website, which does not yet have all my blades and handles pictured, at Randy Porter's Custom Knives. I would be happy to help. Perhaps you would like to score some blades or finished handles from me. Or, I would be happy to provide advice. I am not a professional knife maker. It is my hobby. Nevertheless I've never had a complaint.
