Knifemaking Information




My name is Greg Brannon. I'm a retired Marine and hobbyist knifemaker.

This page is provided to make some information I've found on knife making available to other makers or anyone interested in making knives.


Many thanks to the individuals who have made this information available.





P.S. I've change the format of the site to, hopefully, make it a little more friendly for dial up users. If you prefer the old style of the site it can be found here.

I will continue to update both versions.

This is a boot knife I made from a recycled file; 9.5 inches oal, edge quenched with a brass guard and elk handle.




There are link pages on this site for: (pages will open in box below)

There is a search engine at the bottom of this page, but it will only search the linked pages; not all multiple tutorial site tutorials are linked (as explained here).
