Knife-Making 101! Some of you have been wondering just how I make my knives. The process will vary depending on the type of knife I am creating. Some blades are designed, constructed, and cut from steel ,while others knives are generated using manufactured blades. The handles are created from different types of wood, cut, shaped, glued, secured with brass, sanded, stained, and protected with polyeurathane. The handle grips shapes are molded depending on the use of the knife. See the entire design process on the webpage, How Knives Are Made – click here!
