How to Make a Knife

How to make a Knife

Christmas is just around the corner and my dad is really hard to shop for. He's the stereotypical "wants nothing" kind of person. He does carry a knife and I thought making some custom scales from a tree on the farm would be a really cool gift!

I wanted to make a cool handle, with minimal labor and material. There are many different knife kit options out there. Full length tang, folding, partial tang, push tang, rat tail tang, encapsulated tang... the list just keeps going. I went with a "Full Tang" kit, which means the steel is one solid piece to the back of the knife. It's the strongest of the tang types and really makes handle shaping a lot easier.
