    You already have everything in you to do it. Your desire and inspiration to draw up the design is proof that you have the power and skill to do it. Skills can be learned.

    I ground my first few knives back in 1998 and they were abysmal. I had only one that I was proud of at the time. I gave up knife making for a long time until mid 2007 rolled along. One day I was just inspired and wanted to make knives again. So I dusted out my Grizzly grinder, bought some new belts and went to town. They still were not that great and but I am constantly learning and improving.

    I still use that grizzly grinder and now have a KMG. Good equipment does help out quite a bit. But down and dirty persistence and perseverance to duke it out along with patience to learn and acquire new skill is key!
