Im designing my first knife. For me it's an artistic outlet not necessarily a venture in making a living. I have yet to get tools I'm starting slow and have no background I may have to make a go with hand tools. Till I can afford some machines and such. I may splurge and get grinder l, band saw and vice as that seems to be essential and something needed. I'm pretty sure I'll need other things just not sure what is essential.
My first will be a slippy.
First question: what hand tools could be used to make a sellable slippy?
Second: I have a design and I'm curious as to thicknesses I should consider for blade and scales?
Third: what would a preferred Steel be for the blade for a newb in the knife world?
I'm sure I'll have more ?'s as this thread goes.
