    There are DIY muskets, rifles, small cannons……   a couple unstained rough wood handles, pins and blade shaped metal with a blunt edge like a cavalry sword.  I see a lot on here about blade angles, changing angles, best angle.  Make your own angle and buy another kit or replacement blunt blade and try and compare.  You get revenue from the kit and consumables consumed in shaping a stainless blade etc. and the consumer gets a reason to use their relatively expensive purchase more and feels better about the cost.  Knife aficionado is a small market but weekend warrior is huge.  The DIY cheese kits don’t collect dust and neither do the beer kits.  Just my thoughts.

    Which knives are best used when slicing meat? It’s just that more than one of my knives can’t cut a piece of meat right away. I have to nag it for about a minute

    What material do you use to make knives? I just heard that the best material for blades is the tang. It does not blunt and cuts food into thin slices. I say this from my experience. I’ve been using steel knives for a long time, and they’ve broken often. What annoyed me most was that I had to sharpen these knives once every four months. Ever since I started buying knives at full tang knife, I’ve never sharpened them, not once. I’ve been using them for about a year. So if you want to make knives, then make them out of a tang.
