    stock removal kitchen knife, basic tools

    For anyone who's got the itch but not the equipment

    Don't particularly like the knife itself in this example but I imagine this process could be a lot of fun for a garage tinkerer.

    You know you want to . . .

    I would rather julienne my manhood on a mandoline than do this.


    I admire his tenacity though.

    A lot of people have made nice knives with a file jig or even freehand. I think matus has made some nice ones with files before he got his belt grinder. Even if you have machinery, there's a lot of hand sanding involved if you want this kind of finish.

    LOL, but I meant no disrespect to the maker, in fact just the opposite. I simply couldn't imagine going through that myself, I don't have what it takes.

    The filing jig he made is idential in concept to the sharpening jig he bought. I wonder why people don't make their own sharpening jigs. Turn a stone on its side and ziptie it to a filing jig and go to town.

    His heat treat was WAAAAAAY sub-optimal for O-1. All that work by hand only to skimp on the thing that matters most....shame.

    I'm currently removing the fingerguard from an old sabatier and going to rehandle (and have been doing every so often for the last 12 months) using only files... and god i could never imagine doing that much work.
