Bladesmith Starter Kit - 2 Blade Option
Welcome to custom knife making. We get many calls from people who want to start custom knife making but don't know where to start. With so many steel and handle material options how does someone choose the right products and at the right price?
We have listened to these questions and designed our Bladesmith Starter Kits to provide a convenient and cost effective way for the aspiring Knifemaker to get started .
What’s included: This kit contains all of the supplies to make two chef or hunting knives or one of each. The supplies include a beginner steel, easy to use handle material, brass pins, glue, sand paper and a template to help you shape your first knife.
Information Sheets including: Steps to Make a Knife, Recommended Online Resources, Product Information, and Heat Treatment Recipes.
Gift Certificate: To get you started on your next knife.
What you will need: To make your knife you will need a hack saw to cut the blade from the steel, access to a grinder to shape your blade, a drill to make handle holes and a file to sharpen your blade.
Heat Treating your blade: Your knife blade will need to be heat treated to harden it for use. You can do that in a kiln with the Heat Treatment Recipes provided in this kit. Or you can send your blade for Professional Heat Treatment with Rob Ridley at HeatTreat.ca 403 556 1113.
