Hello! I'm an absolute beginner in knife making. I find it very interesting and have read up quite a bit, but not nearly to the point where I want to get. At this time I'm interested in learning how to do the stock cut out method, and eventually graduating to forging from and re shaping things (like RR spikes, I know there is mixed results/opinions there. Just for practice!) I joined today so that I could search and review the forums for good info, and ask questions when the time comes. I'm also interested in making cool knife scales, as I feel this is an area I'm ready to tackle. Thanks for looking!
