Publisher's Summary

Powerful bladesmithing techniques for beginner, intermediate, and advanced knife makers

Do you want to make your first knife, but don't know where to start?

Does your pride in your bladesmithing skills motivate you to take them to the next level?

Are you constantly inspired by popular bladesmithing TV shows, and want to improve and compare to the master bladesmiths present on them?

I, Wes Sander, will share the secrets of creating knives and swords that are easy to make, yet strong and sharp.

  • The most cost-effective method to make your first knife
  • How you can make your first sword, in just 17 steps, start to finish
  • The 10 step method to forging a pattern welded Damascus sword
  • Four techniques that will "reveal" the end grain texture of your Damascus knife
  • How to forge, assemble, heat treat, and polish a Japanese sword
  • The secret temperature to correctly temper your Japanese blade
  • The number one high-performance steel that you should use to make knives
  • How to build a simple but effective forge
  • A simple technique, used by master bladesmiths, that will prevent your blade from shattering, even if it's your first time making a knife
  • How to set up a good working shop, without breaking the bank with expensive machinery

Every day that you delay is another day that you deny your passion for bladesmithing.

disappointingly simplistic

very little detail was given. not enough to give you a starting knowledge of how to do any of it on your own.

Most information available in one source.

Well written. ok illustrations. narration clear but robotic. mass amounts of information not always organized and sometimes sporadic in topics compilation. Need for illustrations a must.

it will be listening to this book again. great source of information. I recommend this if you plan to make knives or swords as a hobby, or to sell.

shockingly bad! very brief, lots of info missing..

it's just terrible! like it's been outsourced to a non English speaker then tweaked then recorded.

this like "anyone can make a sword in an auspicious way"... like, wtf?

the step by step us bad too 'grind a bevel on the knife' yer? what angle? start at cutting edge and work back to spine maybe? no info given.

don't get this audio book it's crap IMO (I trained a year as a blacksmith and have done a bladesmithing course, so can speak to this book being crap).

Don't bother.

I learnt nothing from this book that I couldn't have found on the internet or Youtube. Narration poor. Information given in a haphazard way.

Do not buy.

Utterly meaningless book, was hoping for some expert wisdom in sharing insight on forging, heat treatments and finishing. It’s sadly useless. Better off watching videos on YouTube.
