New to knife making!

Discussion in 'Shop Talk' started by sgarbett, Aug 15, 2018.

  1. Hi guys, I am new to knife making, but old in using. I was a chef for 10 years, now out the trade but want to start forging blades.

    What my real question is Has anyone got any good advise for someone starting out forging, for what types of metals to obtain and equipment that is helpful for the starting out process.

    I am located in the UK if that helps narrow down supplies and shops etc.

    Thanks boys and girls!

    Welcome. I am a novice smith, though have only done stock removal. But I do forge other things to improve my knowledge and skill. Some day I'll do some knives. I'll second Bill T's rec and mention these as well Iforgeiron.com. There is a good FB site called Blacksmithing for Beginners.
