Arrow Remaking kitchen knives into new knives.

I've been having some fun remaking thrift shop kitchen knives into new knives. Not a bad way get your toes wet in knife making IMO.

I made a video about it:

Inexpensive, no heat treating. No drilling or forging. No need to make or attach scales. A practical exercise in grinding, honing, polishing, finishing an edge. It's been a fun way to kill an afternoon every once and a while.

Hi guys. I'm happy that you enjoy my videos and they're useful for you!

I will tell Bob hello from you guys and scratch him behind the ears for you. He's very social and if he could type, he'd be a member here at SB. LOL.

You know some folks think that this is where the "Nessmuk" pattern came from, from a reground butcher knife. Some even do this intentionally with a brand new Old Hickory butcher knife..... now to watch the vid. Thanks.

ETA: Bob looks kinda' like our cat Stripes! Cool job.

That was a great video! It is good for people to see that you can make a knife without a lot of tools. And make a nice one at that.

My shop dummy knife began life as a 9" FarberWare Pro Chef's knife, that the previous owner tried to use as a pry bar. So now its sporting a 6" blade, with a swedge (for practice), thinner blade and guard (for practice), textured scales (for practice), and the obverse side has a whole lot of prison tat looking etches from where I've been practice 9v etching. And a very sharp edge courtesy of an ezelap diamond board. :D

I'm thinking back in the day, a good piece of steel was a good piece of steel, and the usefulness was in the eye of the beholder. Wondering how many issue swords were repurposed over generations, down to a kitchen knife.

Now there is a fast money maker. Go to the flea market and pick up a bunch of old broken knives for pennies and remake into $50 each with a couple hours of work. Well done indeed.

Excellent video! While most prefer shiny stainless, the old carbon steel ends up at thrift stores. Yea for us!
