A knife is the most basic tool, and the average adult uses a knife almost every day. Yet there are very few
individually made knives in existence, and few people who know how to make knives. Step by Step Knifemaking, by master
knifemaker David Boye, is widely regarded as the classic on the art of handcrafted knives. Thorough, clear, detailed
instructions guide the reader through each step in how to make a knife. Generously illustrated with photos and drawings
on most pages, this book reads like a one-on-one workshop with a thoughtful teacher. The reader is led to discover the
spiritual connection between himself and his work, to develop his sense of artistry, and to acquire practical skills for
self-sufficiency. Completely self-taught, the author guides the beginning knifemaker through the thinking processes
necessary to make a knife; inspires confidence in the reader to begin at his own skill level; and shows how it can be
done on a financial shoestring. Topics covered include tools, setting up a shop, knife design, grinding, heat
treating, polishing, sharpening, blade etching, sheath making, and more. Boye's outdoor knives, kitchen cutlery, and
utility knives are functional and "peace-loving," and the chapter on etching designs into the blades is one of the few
guides to this unique art in print. With over 175,000 copies in print, Step by Step Knifemaking has deeply moved
thousands to involve themselves in this craft, and they constitute a visible portion of today's knifemakers. This book
can impel the reader to a personally satisfying, alternative backyard career, making his own useful knife art. It is an
enjoyable, indispensable reference for those wanting to learn knifemaking, become more self-reliant, or for anyone with
an interest in the ancient craft of blades. "Handmade knives are unique," writes David Boye, "reflecting the skills
and personality of their maker. They impart a personal touch to what would be a cold impersonal item. Thus it is with a
handmade knife, or a handmade article of any kind, that there is a subtle exchange of electromagnetic energy that is
transferred from the heart and the hands of the craftsman to the heart of the person who sees and uses the handmade
article. Hopefully, the product will be the embodiment and expression of love and beauty in a useful, sanitary, and safe
cutting tool - a hint of a deeper, more profound spirit in the process of living." 272 pages; 170 illustrations; 155
photographs.
