A blog about the adventures of an amateur blacksmith, knife enthusiast, and self proclaimed awesome person.
I am a 15 year old guy who is drawn to knives and other pointy objects. In this blog, I hope to cover basics of knife ownership and eventually DIY knives. Nothing is for sale (yet) as I haven't made anything yet...

So I made a knife
I couldn't find a fixed blade that I liked with a blade under 4 inches (Nim Cub II is nice but expensive) so I made my own. Specs: High carbon steel (leaf spring), 8" length, 4" blade, 5/16" thick.
Still need to temper it, add rosewood handle scales, and sharpen it.
