Hello, all I have been admiring all many of the customs and reworks of the various blades on this site. I have also seen on knife forums a rework of a old hickory butchers knife that I really like. I want to try to make this one myself. I have never done this before and want to know where to begin and where do you get your slab handles from both wood and micarta. Do you use a regular grinding wheel to shape the blade as wanted and finish with a file. I will start with already cut blades vs a full knife from a file because I just want to focus on learning cutting, fit and finish before I even begin trying to worry about heat treats.
