Book - How to make a tactical knife using your milling machine by Don Robinson
Made in the USA
Don Robinson is a heavily experienced Knifemaker, Tool & Die Maker, Tool Designer, and Manufacturing Engineer.
This book is designed to teach a knifemaker or an experienced machinist who has access to a milling machine how to build a complete knife and sheath.
There is one difference in this method and others. The flats on the blade are made using a milling machine.
This makes it easy to produce a matched plunge on both sides of the blade, and an even, flat, centered cutting edge.
Although the book uses a large fixed blade as an example, the same method applies to any blade, small or large, fixed or folder blades.
I use this method on every blade I make. For me it's easier, faster, and more accurate than grinding the flats by hand.
All the details with lots of pictures of actual operations.
Teaches how to make the knife and Kydex sheath from start to finish.
Includes bill of materials needed.
68 pages of detailed instructions.
