This is the second post in a two part series on my process creating my first knife. For part one please click here.
As I mentioned in my post about my goals for the year one thing I wanted to do was get started in bladesmithing. I was actually thinking about this the other day and I my interest in knives can be pretty clearly traced back to Poppie. I remember him showing me a knife from his time in the military. It was a folder with a fork and spoon and I thought it was the coolest thing. He told me when I got older he would give it to me, and it's one of my most prized possessions.
