So here is a little gift from an old timer to those that are keen to learn.
My name is Steve Wheeler and I am a deeply lazy person. Which is why I am always looking for the fastest most efficient way of making
gear as I would much prefer not to have to work 15 hours a day. I still do, and probably will until I expire, but hey, dreams are free!
I have been a full time, self employed, knife and swordsmith for over 18 years. A sculptor for the last 26.
So, over the next few weeks I shall take you through step by step of how to make a good quality utility knife.
And feel free to ask me as many questions about knifesmithing as you need, but please no questions on design, that is up to you. I will show you my preferences and have to also say that I will not take offence if you copy them because really there is very little under the sun which is really new.
Oh, and also show you the quickest way to sharpen a knife as well.
In fact how about we start with that. Sure as hell makes slicing up your tomatoes for a sandwich so much easier.
