I’m pretty sure I started by tracing out my knife on my 01 tool steel (that’s knife lingo) with the knife blank provided and then cutting it on the band saw of DEATH. Okay, its not really called that but that’s what it felt like when I was staring at it waiting to take my turn. I mean seriously, it’s a big machine with sharp teeth that was going to cut into my steel like it was butter.
I thought “How ridiculous! I’ll never be so impractical!” To me, at that time, anything more than 1 or 2 knives was just unnecessary. Spending more than $100 on a knife was crazy. They all cut, right?! What’s the big deal?
