Knife making is the process of manufacturing a knife by any one or a combination of processes: stock removal, forging to shape, welded lamination or investment cast. Typical metals used come from the carbon steel, tool, or stainless steel families. Primitive knives have been made from bronze, copper, brass, iron, obsidian, and flint.

    Knife maker woes...

    I get disappointed when I hear, "Can you make me a Kabar?". Yes, of course I can. But for $165 you can get a new model made of D2 or for $70 you can get an old model out of 1095. Why would you want one out of 80CRV2 or 52100? Sure it is going to be 0.250" +- instead of 5/32", but come on...
