I just recently started working on knives and found this forum. I already picked up some hits and tips. So far I've re-scaled and straightened out two switchblade knives. Both turned out pretty good and now I'm working on some old roached out E-Bay manual knives that I picked up in a bulk lot.
Winter is coming up so I'll have 5-6 months of indoor time to spend on knives.

Welcome aboard Jeff!
I wound up here EXACTLY the same way.
Started buying lot knives to re-sell, and I needed help figuring out what was worth a nickel, and what was plain junk.

I'll warn you ahead of time... These guys LIVE for pictures. :lol: (knife porn ya' know).
Have fun sir!
