Wanye Goddard is great, this is a great book for the mere fact that It tells you how to make knives on the "cheap".
This is a great KNIFE MAKING beginners book.
also a great resource for people
who have made knives via STOCK REDUCTION and want to get into FORGING.
When I die and go to heaven, I one wish is that Wayne Goddard and
Tai Goo are there. We are going to test the noise abatement laws.
