Today, there isn’t much of an excuse for making ugly knives. Perhaps the best thing I can teach about design is to consider the flow of the lines that define a knife’s shape. Don’t do things that disrupt the flowing lines of the knife. The new knifemaker should try different styles, shapes and sizes when starting out in this field. With experience he or she will find a unique style. BLADE AND HANDLE LENGTH Years ago, I settled on a length of 3 7⁄8 inches as the ideal size for a hunting knife blade.
You can make knives if all you have is a sharp pocketknife and some scraps of soft wood. Employ the design process described earlier, then draw your dream knife on a piece of wood and carve it to the finished shape. You’ll learn how to look at a piece of material to see if it is being kept symmetrical as you progress. You’ll learn how to shape a nice radius on the handle surfaces. You may not want to be a wood carver but this exercise will get you started on your journey to being a knifemaker. A bonus is that it will also give you practice sharpening knives.
The grind prior to the heat-treating process doesn’t have to be exactly precise. The odd little things that are not quite right can usually be fixed in the final grinding process. The stock-removal knifemaker starts with a rectangular cross-section of steel and turns it into a wedge shape, which can be arrived at with several different methods. HARD-WHEEL GRINDING OF THE BEVELS The stock-removal method can be completed several ways. The most common and best is with a belt grinder using either a flat platen to make a flat-ground blade or a contact wheel to make a hollow-ground blade.
