This is a series of videos I made for beginners or people wanting to get into the hobby. I kept hearing the question; "What tools do I need to buy make a knife?" So I decided to make a knife using the minimum of expense and tools. I ended up being able to make the knife with only 2 power tools; an angle grinder and a drill. The total cost of tools would be under $300.
Forging a small blade in 20 minutes and then grinding and heat treating it.
Kind of for fun, I designed and built a belt grinder. Here is a look at it.
I was just curious where the stresses on my power hammer were, and what exactly was going on. So I filmed a little slo-mo action.
