Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title of Mr. Goddard's fine book advertises the ability to set up a knife shop for $50 and it delivers. Obviously you can't go into a hardware store and buy $50 worth of tools and supplies and have a fully functioning knife shop, but you certainly can do it by focusing your scrounging efforts. Goddard originally did this as a simple forged knife project for the 1988 Black Powder Annual. It subsequently turned into a series on knife-making in Blade magazine, called "The $50 Knife Shop." With an acknowledgement that these are prices from the late '80's - early '90's here is the cost list.

Coal Forge - $5
Makeshift Anvil and forge tools - $10
Grinder - $5
1955 Black and Deckr hand drill - $5
Drill press adapter - free
Toaster overn - $2
World's smallest forge - $10
Blade and handle material for 2 knives - $2
Total - $36

He also wound up building a belt grinder for $16 to simplify the knife making process.

Goddard covers both forged and stock removal methods in this manual, and he does it very well to my way of thinking. He explains each step, with plenty of pictures and anyone with simple to moderate skills should have no trouble working right along with him. He also deals with heat treating, Damascus steel, home made grinders and primitive knife making.

Of course, if you elect to go with a $200 knife shop, you will likley find the tasks even easier.

I have yet to start any of these projects, but Wayne Goddard has made me eager to give it a go.

This book is phenomenal! It is incredibly clear, full of great photos, and clear explanations. This book is a must have for anyone who wants to get into knife making without spending a fortune on a shop.

I am very inspired by Goddard's ability of blade-smith with primitive tools and I will be starting myself based on his ideas.

Awesome

This was exactly the book I wanted. Covers forged and stock removal making. Stock removal is really the way to go for stainless blade making in modern times.
