HOW TO MAKE A KNIFE TEMPLATE

How to make a knife template? 

Knife templates can be drawn out on a computer using graphic design software OR can be drawn out just on paper, either using a knife you already like or by printing one out from online. We recommend placing this over a piece of cardboard or something with some rigidity so you can feel the template in your hand. Feeling in the hand is one of the most important aspects of making a quality knife. Once this is done you can use your template to grind town your steel into the outline of the knife you are trying to make
