Making Utility and Defensive Knives on a Budget

with Wally Hayes

Have you always wanted to learn how to make a knife? Well, here's your chance. With a few inexpensive tools, some easily acquired materials, a little hard work and this two-disc DVD production from Paladin Press, you can learn all the basic skills of knifemaking and be on your way to producing your own high-quality custom blades. Master Bladesmith Wally Hayes first shows you how to turn your workshop into a functional knife shop for less than $250. He then takes you step-by-step through a complete course in knifemaking, including profiling and grinding your blade; differentially heat-treating your knife (using a home-built forge that costs less than $40); embellishing your blade with filework; crafting form-fitting Kydex sheaths in your kitchen oven; polishing your blade to a mirror finish; attaching a slab handle and doing a Japanese cord-wrapped handle. This video covers the complete construction of two knives - a chisel-ground tanto-style neck knife and a flat-ground utility/hunting knife - and is one of the most detailed courses in knifemaking ever captured on video. For information purposes only.


Master craftsman Wally Hayes is one of the hottest knifemakers and designers in the custom cutlery world today. He has earned the coveted Master Bladesmith rating from the American Bladesmith Society and is a member and former president of the Canadian Knifemaker's Guild.
