I started making my 1st knife. I have an extremely basic setup. I have only used and angle grinder and filing jig. I still need to send this off to get heat treated. I am deciding if i am going to attempt to sharpen this myself or send it away to get professionally sharpened. I have never sharpened a knife before and was considering getting the shapton glass stone set 1k, 3k, 8k and a lower grit stone to get the edge going. I would practice on cheap blunt kitchen knives 1st ifni were to do this The handle pictured in the second video is just a practice handle i have been working on(also my 1st). I plan to make a octagonal wa handle with this dyed maple burl, buffalo ferrule and brass or copper spaces. I also plan to etch some add some soet of patten. Just not sure yet. Possibly a fake hamon. Any advice or criticisms are more than welcome.
