Basic Knife Making: From Raw Steel to a Finished Stub Tang Knife by Ernst G. Siebeneicher-Hellwig and Jürgen Rosinski
In this book Ernst G. Siebeneicher-Hellwig and Jürgen Rosinski show the simplest and least expensive ways to construct a simple forge, make all necessary tools yourself, forge a stub tang blade from an old automobile coil spring, and make a complete knife.
Their practical guide demonstrates the most important theoretical basics and shows how simple it can be to experience bladesmithing.
Each step is presented in text and pictures, with a special focus on forging the blade. Clear lists of tools and materials help you through the process.
Practical tips, explanations of terms, and sketches round out the volume.
