yet another newbie question


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have a kinda stupid question:

How do you get the curve on the blade of the knife? If you look on a lot of knives there the distance between the blade and the back of the knife decreases as you get to the end of the blade. Is that because the metal was filed like that, or hammered like that, or what?
