Knife Making Information From The
FREE Learning Series
From Keith Nix Knives, a series of steps and processes involved in taking wood and steel, and marrying the two to make a useable and attractive heirloom knife. Are you a custom knifemaker just learning the trade? Or a curious collector wanting to know how wood and steel become a custom kitchen knife? Either way, I have some answers, and something of a series of step-by-step processes to help!
We'll also cover Heat Treating, Bevel Grinding, Hand Sanding and Polishing, Wood Choice, and Handle Attachment and Finishing!
We never claim that our practices are the ONLY way to make a knife, just our way. There are as many ways to make a knife as there are people who make them. As long as the finished product makes a serviceable, durable knife, that's what matters most!
