Thread: First knife to make

    First knife to make

    Thinking of making a knife.

    What is the easiest place to start?

    What steel, knife type, and handle type?

    Does anyone have any resources that they recommend for reading before I start?

    I would start with a leaf spring or coil spring. it's most likely 5160 which is a easy steel to heat treat.

    Here's a list of what types of steel you can find for free.
