What is Bladesmithing?

Bladesmithing is the art of making knives, swords, daggers and other blades using a forge, hammer, anvil, and other smithing tools.

Bladesmiths employ a variety of metalworking techniques similar to those used by blacksmiths, as well as woodworking for knife and sword handles, and often leatherworking for sheaths.

Bladesmithing is an art that is thousands of years old and found in cultures as diverse as China, Japan, India, Germany, Korea, the Middle East, and the British Isles. As with any art shrouded in history, there are myths and misconceptions about the process.

While traditionally, bladesmithing referred to the manufacture of any blade by any means, the majority of contemporary craftsmen referred to as bladesmiths are those who primarily manufacture blades by means of using a forge to shape the blade as opposed to knifemakers who form blades by use of the stock removal method, although there is some overlap between both crafts.

Jewellery Tips & Tricks

  • Sawing: Looking forward to sawing
  • When sawing through sheet metal, always keep your eyes focused slightly ahead of your saw blade. By looking several millimeters ahead, you will have less of a tendency to make "choppy" corrections when your cut strays. Just like driving a car, you want to pay attention to what's in front of you, instead of what is directly below you at that moment. The result? Smoother curves, straighter lines, and less filing / finishing.
