Bladesmithing Compendium for Beginners

If you want to make knives with simple tools, then keep reading…
Do you feel that reliable sources of bladesmithing information are expensive and scarce?
Do you want to start without breaking the bank with expensive machinery?
Have you come across the perfect piece of scrap steel, but dont know how to turn it into a knife?
Are you always getting your knife shattered or warped, every time you attempt to heat treat it?
Are small imperfections in your knives frustrating you?
I, the author, also faced such problems.
That's why I compiled this book, to help a beginner get started in all basic aspects of knife making.
Note: This book has 3 manuscripts
Book 1: Bladesmithing for Beginners: Make Your First Knife in 7 Steps
