Custom Knife Making

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by _NANOC_, Sep 4, 2015.

  1. The game CSGO has customized knives maybe you can get some inspiration from that
  2. Do you have a particular type of blade that you would be making?
  3. That reminds me of these guys in Baltimore. They do a youtube series where they make iconic anime/video game swords. Like Devil may cry, berserker... Ect..

    Pretty good stuff.
  4. I don't want to be limited to a certain knife but for starters I am thinking a bushcraft or hunting style knife.

    Do a few simple designs first. Then move on to a different style when I am more comfortable with making a good knife.
  5. If you make me a Karambit I will die.
  6. I've seen that knife plenty and I think it is a very awesome design. I can't see why eventually I couldn't make such a knife but I am not trying to copy anyones work. Althought it is near impossible to come up with a design that someone hasn't already done. Most I see are people putting their own twist on a style of blade.
  7. Can we start seeing some photos of custom knives in here? Get it rolling.

    Good ones. Like those shared on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and dedicated blog pages.
  8. Hell, show off your own knives.
  9. I'll take a pic of my Ka-Bar.
  10. I stated i was not to a stage of posting any pictures right now. Right now I am mostly just having a discussion.
  11. Hey, forges are easy to make!

    Just buy a new land and get a little bit of gold and you're set.
  12. Very funny
  13. Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.

    So I thought I'd give this another shot to have others read.

    Still looking for any tips or tricks to making a good quality knife for a beginner.
  14. Good luck to you OP, try to make your knives unique and different from any other knife of its kind.
  15. Robot that is what I will be trying to do but it is extremely hard. If you can think of it, chances are it has been done. I just try to put my own touch to my design though.

    Don't get me wrong I am not doing this to become the best or well known knife maker. This is just to make a little extra cash at a hobby
