I will be bringing enough materials for 5 attendees to build their own knives. This is the third time I have ever done a hands-on group knife build. This is going to be something really special and you can thank Jack for talking me into it, and for equipping his shop with some basic tools for the class! I will be bringing plenty of my own tools, including my TW90 Knife Grinder, which is a work horse […]

$600 Knife Shop

$600 Knife Shop

 

Most everyone has heard of the book $50 Knife Shop. If you have not then that is a good place to start on building a shop. I get asked often what tools people should buy. Unfortunately there is no one answer to the question. It depends on each persons budget, goals, and work space. I started my shop with about $1000 of tools. I bought an Anvil, Drill Press, 4X36 Grinder, and a bandsaw. I already had basic hand tools, I built a forge from scrap from the scrap yard and started making knives. Not long after that I built my first 2×72 grinder from an […]

Setting Angles for Sharpening Jigs

Every wonder how to find the proper angle while sharpening?

Maybe you have a Professional Knife Sharpener like the one below. Or maybe you just want to know what angle you are holding when sharpening. In the past I have covered these topics in other post. However I figured I would cover it from a new angle. 😀 pun intended.



 One simple way I have covered in the past, is to use paper, and known angles like below. Simply make a guide and placing it between the knife and sharpening stone. 

A new twist to this old trick […]

Learn to make knives… the MTK way!

My first time teaching people to learn to make knives went really well!

During The 2017 Survival Podcast’s Spring Workshop this past month I helped eight people to make their very first handmade knife! It was an amazing experience! When Jack asked me to help people learn to make knives with this class I really wanted them to come away knowing something about knifemaking and I think they did! It was my first time teaching a class like this and I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t have enough time to teach everyone to make their knives in the short time that I had available to me. Especially since I was just one instructor among 15 different breakout workshops!

Thankfully, […]
