    Hey all,
    I am new to knife making, looking to hone this craft. I am currently pretty good at anos, bushings, etc. I just did my first regrind. I was fixing up a knife for a good friend, and he wanted me to try a regrind. I’ll post the photo in the thread. Anyway naturally that is my next step. I’m looking for someone in the ulster county ny area, who could teach me how to do a proper grind/regrind. I can work for free, or pay you to get a jump start on learning to grind. Anyway as always, thanks to the JD, and hope to hear from one of you guys! Thanks again!

    Fixed blades make your own
    Small blades like puukko knives or something similar or whatever you want just keep at it. There is a lot of info on here and youtube but ultimately its trial and error that teaches the most
