Stock Removal Process Steps

Recommended Posts

What are the steps to produce a stock removal knife? I dont need the explanation of each step, just a check list to go by so I dont anneal or temper or harden out of order. I can research each step before I complete it. Thanks in advance!

See, Wes, I knew I would get something out of order. I had Drink Beer as steps 1, 2, 8 and 11. Good looking out



My pleasure Dustin. I wouldn't say that you have it out of order... but your lines might be a little wonky if you have too many Step 11s ;)
