Q: I have never made a knife before. Can your book still help me to make swords and Damascus knives?

A: Yes. The steps laid out inside this book have been designed to guide even the person who has no experience making knives, so you can get started no matter what your skill level is

Q: How is the author qualified to teach these bladesmithing techniques?

A: I, Wes Sander, am an expert bladesmith with experience in bladesmithing since 1999. I have forged many Damascus swords, knives, and katanas to effectively teach others how to do so.

Additionally, I have had the privilege to attend many BLADE conventions and other exhibitions to know the craft of other bladesmiths as well.

So yes, I would say I'm qualified to bring you results when teaching you how to make swords and knives.

Q: I don't have a lot of tools to start. Can I still make knives and swords using your book?

A: Only a few tools are required to start with this book. The rest you can make or acquire along your bladesmithing journey. The book even has a step-by-step guide to making your own forge. Even someone without a forge can start

The number of ideas you can realise for your knives is directly related to your understanding of various bladesmithing techniques and the characteristics of different materials.

Get started before you find the perfect piece of stock steel, but are unable to forge it.
