    I am wondering if ther are any good magazines that I could subscribe to that are focused on bladesmithing/blacksmithing. "Blade" and "Knife World" are ok but seem to be focused more toward production knives and knife collectors. I guess I'm looking for some thing like "family handy man" but for knife making.. Thanks

    I like Knives Illustrated. They feature more about custom makers than a solid run on factory stuff like the rest of the mags do.

    I don't have their site link, but should be easy to track down. ABANA's Hammer Blow and The Anvil Ring are regular smithing publications which have lots of info besides blade forging. Check em out and good luck.

    There is an on-line knife magazines now. I haven't really read it, so I can't promise that it's any good. However, it is free.
    Blades International

    Anvil Magazine is also on on-line now. They do have some free articles, but they charge a subscription fee for full access.

    Knifemaking DVDs check my site out..... Also, Darren Ellis sells ours too. They are done by myself, Kim Breed, and Gary Wheeler.
