The Art of Teaching Knifemaking

Scott loves sharing the art of knifemaking, especially when a student is capable of going from a hand-forged blade to a finished knife in just 2 1/2 days.

From the power hammer to the grinder - two knives rough-forged and ready for heat treat.  The student's knife is at the top of the picture and a demo knife by Scott McGhee is at the bottom.

Ahh, the art of hand-sanding - torture or meditation, you decide. 

Work'in on the handle at the Wilmont grinder. 

Knife sanding yoga? Working on handles leads to some interesting positions.

 Meet the Creek Chub by Scott Gallagher. The man clearly has skills. 
Keep an eye out for more knives from this talented guy.
