Making a Carving Knife 3

The next step is to shape the blade the way you want. I don’t even worry about the shaft of the blade since it is gonna be up in the handle wedged between that dowel rod we split in half. 🙂 Just worry about shaping the exposed part and if you use a grinder don’t let it get too hot. Just worry about shaping the outside of the blade for now, not the edge.

  1. Looks good. I’ve commented already but couldn’t resist after reading this. If I’ve seen right, it looks like you’ve used a blade from electric jigsaw. At least it’s similar 🙂
    Brought back memory how grandpa used to make tools or improvise.
    So one grandfather’s recipe for home made grinder coming up: take one juice extractor and throw out plastic jug. Replace it with sharpening stone and screw tightly on 🙂 … well grandpa had fun.
