Hi guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice about knife making.
I've already ordered some knife blades which I'm gonna make some nice handles for, I'm pretty confident I can get them bob on. However. I'm after advice on making them from scratch. Unfortunately at the moment I don't have time to look into a furnaces and go down the hammer and anvil route (I'd love to though, maybe something I'll get into) but I've seen plenty of folk using good files and saw blades as the knife blade, and grinding these into shape to finish with files.
My question is, wouldn't using a grinder on these materials soften them, so they'd need re hardening and tempering anyway. I know there are some great minds on here.
Thanks in advance.
