I had two happy kids after this Saturday's Build-a-Knife workshop. The boys each had plenty of time on the grinder and learned about all of the processes of making a handmade blade. The boys were "shop" dirty and even managed to keep all of the skin on their knuckles. By the end of the day they each went home with a shiny new drop point hunter and a kydex belt sheath. Stay safe and sharp kiddos.
Popular Mechanics contacted me regarding writing an article on a series of knives that I built using the steel from a GAU-8 Avenger canon barrel. They were kind enough to put together a very flattering article about this series of one off custom blades. Check out the article here
