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.
