Hey all, long time lurker, figured I should finally make an account : D

I'm thinking of buying a new anvil to begin my journey, what do you guys think of this article on the best anvils for knife making? Is it legit? It seems a little..."commercial" I guess. I have not made a knife on my own yet.

Welcome! You could maybe start by buying premade blades and adding handles to them if you're not into the metal work/forging part of the hobby.

Welcome! Try a kit or premade blade as TimGinMN has suggested. Another great reference is a book called the $50 Knife Shop. And of course this Forum. Ask questions. Many Super talented people on here. Good luck and enjoy!
