Hello, All! I have lurked here for a couple of weeks, hoping to glean as much as I can before I repeat all the newbie questions. A few quick notes about myself, in point form for speed. -I am totally new to metalworking and knifemaking. -I am working on my electrical apprenticeship to pay the bills. -I like to make things myself, especially specialty items, and I have built eight guitars. -I am not able to invest a lot of money into my knife-making aspirations, and am hoping to get by for a while with my drill presses, belt sanders (1x42, 6x48, and 6x89), and Taig microlathe. No forge in my near future, so I'll have to figure out a way to work around that. -My purpose in getting into knife-making is to make hunting, fishing, skinning, and boning knives, probably mostly for myself, but we'll see where this goes. I do not plan to make money at this for a long time, if ever. I have searched my local library for books, and all I was able to find were 1) a book on making folders, which is not quite what I am after, and 2) Knifemaking by Bo Bergman, which I hesitate to place too much credibility in because his blades appear to be quite rough, and his methods include using pre-existing blades from Frost. Frost knives do not seem to get the best reviews, although maybe the blades he used were not made by the same company I found reviews for. I have an old-looking Frost knife, and it isn't amazing. My plan is to make my first knife out of a circular saw blade from the local lumber mill. I realize that it will likely be inferior steel, but I hope to gain some grinding skills without spending much money. Is there a book someone could recommend, or a tutorial online I could read? I get overwhelmed looking at all the steel choices, and I don't even know enough to know what I don't know. Anyway, I'm grateful to find a Canadian forum, and looking forward to learning what I can.
