Noob but not too noob

Hi all! As you may have been able to tell from the thread title, I am new to knife making. The extent of my knowledge of knife making is from binge watching YouTube videos. I can cut the knives somewhat well, but I dont know where to go after that. I would appreciate it very much of someone with some knife making skill and a bit of extra time would be willing to help me out and further my hobby of knife making.

Post your location. Perhaps someone is close by that would be willing to help you along. Otherwise, post any questions on here and plenty of experience will chime in and try to help. Welcome to the forum.

Whelp, if you're anywhere in the Springfield Missouri area I'd be happy to help out. I'm not an expert by any means, but I could probably manages a crash course

Step number 1 build a forge and learn to heat treat....unless your going to send out the knives for heat treat...I was told early on a knife with no good heat treat is just a knife shaped object not a real knife...that was the first and in my opinion the most important thing I learned....it is a bit of a process of trial and error I was walked through the process and in turn I have helped a couple other new guys through it...as ray said that is what we do here let us know when your ready...........also I am in NY about half hour above the city if your anywhere near by let me know
