    Good day,
    I recently started making knives in November 2015. I do stock removal with O1 tool steel. I have a 1x30 bench sander (looking to upgrade but can't find a 2x72). I do my own heat treat in the garage with a diy propane forge.
    I am interested in finding a knife maker local or as close as possible to the brantford Cambridge area to help learn and grow. Weather this is a mentorship or paid instruction is fine.
    Hope that this is the right spot to post.
    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forums. I hope you can find a mentor in your area, but in the meantime, you'll find us a very good resource. The folks here can answer a lot of your questions and help to with problems with tools or technique.

    Thank you for the welcome. I am sure I will benefit immensely from the resources here.
    I have been reading a lot from what's already here. As I encounter a problem I will reach out.

    Welcome, fellow newbie!

    A few guys have ended up building their own 2x72s, and there are tons of plans all over the internet for that.

    And you're in the right spot. ;) feel free to have a look around and ask questions!
