Description: The information packed into this one volume took more than 30 years to compile. If you have an interest in knives and knifemaking, this book is for you.
Master smith Wayne Goddard is an icon in the custom knifemaking field. As a full-time maker, teacher and writer, Goddard works as hard to teach knifemaking skills as he does to acquire them. His affiliation with Blade Magazine has brought new and interesting information, tips, and tricks to thousands of would-be knifemakers.
The Wonder of Knifemaking is a compilation of Goddard’s columns and advice as it has appeared in Blade Magazine over the past several years. He also mixes in new and updated material. With his straightforward style, Goddard answers real questions on every aspect of knifemaking – from selecting steel to heat treating and finishing the blade.
Goddard also enters into a discussion of the tools needed by the knifemaker. With information compiled from his popular column, The $50 Knife Shop, Goddard shows knifemakers how to create works of art with simple tools.
