Introduction: Knife Making With Wood and Brass Handle

In this instructable we're tackling the task of making a knife, or more appropriately a knife handle. Even though a lot of the hardware can be bought ready made in this indstructable we're making all parts of the knife, except for the knife blade, from scratch using stock wood and metal material.

For this instructable you'll need:


Knife blade
Wood, in this case we're using walnut as the main wood and briar as an accent wood
Mineral oil

Epoxy glue, slow curing is to be preferred


Belt and drum sander (or files/sandpaper)
Drill press, and a milling machine can be useful, though not required

Buffing compound and a Dremel buffing wheel
