Knife Making Supplies
The performance of a knife is directly proportional to its overall construction. Knife making is a sacred art, and there are many methods to consider. Some of the more popular methods include stock removal, forging to shape, welded lamination, and investment casting. Depending on the knife maker’s preferences and available materials, different knife making methods can be used. Knife Country USA carries a large selection of knife making materials and knife making supplies for any craftsman.
An Insight into Knife Making
We would like to share some of our knife making wisdom with our customers:
- The blade is often the most important component to take into consideration. To get the design of your dreams, graph it first on paper. You can then narrow down to the style that you are looking to contruct. Once you know what your DIY Do-It-Yourself knife design is going to be you can shop our Knife Making Blanks Blades section to puchase the proper knife blank for your project.
- You can be creative with your blade’s design, but make sure that its functionality and practicality remain unchallenged.
- Decide on the blade’s tang length. It’s easier to opt for full tang construction as we carry more full tang knife blanks than push & rat tail tangs. An addition plus to full tangs as it is easier to attach handles and the knife's overall is much stronger.
- By attaching two pieces of wood on both sides, you’ll be able to make the handles as thick or as thin as you prefer. Listed under our Knife Making Handles you will see a wide selection of handle materials.
- Try to opt for stainless steel blanks if you want something that does not rust and needs less care after product. Or you can go for high-quality Damascus carbon steel blank that is harder than stainless and every Damascus Blank looks unique with it's layer ripples. All of our blanks are heat treated and come pre-sharpened (unless stated otherwise).
- The blade’s thickness should be between 1/8 inches and 1/4 inches when casting your own blade. All the knife blanks that we sell are in between thise specs.
- Cut the metal into a rectangular shape and grind it as per the blueprint.
- When finished with heat treatment, don’t waste time. Start sanding the blade using finer grits of paper.
- Cut the handles into a desired shape, and drill for rivets later.
- After inserting rivets, use a saw to make the final cuts and adjust the handle accordingly.
