The making of a knife ! Our way !
On this page will I try to tell you how I make my kind ofknife , from the beginning , with a bar of steel , until afinished knife , embellished with scrimshaw from VivecaSahlin .She will also tell you how she makes her wonderfulscrimshaw . I do not have a digital camera so you have tobe patient while I am developing the photos and also havingthe time to publish them on our site .This is Part 1 .Click here for Part 2.Click here for Scrimshaw.
When I try to find out what kind of knife I would like to make , I always use my"sketch-book" . If I don´t find anything interesting at the moment , then I makesome new sketches .Then I look at my different sorts of stainless steels , ATS-34 , RWL-34 ,Damasteel , 440C etc , and decide what sort I would like to use .

 Then I place the cut-out from paper on the steel and trace the lines with amarking pen . The steel of this knife will be the "twist-pattern" fromDamasteel .If the steel , for some reason , ist the same size as the sketch . I have tomake it fit , and for that purpose am I using a hack-saw .

 Then I begin to grind the steel following the lines that I made on the steel .When the profiling is done , I drill holes in the knife blank . Bigger holes formaking the knife easier to taper and smaller holes for the rivets to the scales .
