NOTE: These knife blanks are already heat treated and hardened. All you need to do is add a handle and maybe a sheath. We suggest adding a pair of g10 scales in 3/16" or 1/4" thick material for the handle. You could also add some handsome wood scales from our extensive assortment or even from your own stock.
440C is possibly the most popular knife steel in use today. It takes and holds a good edge. It has good corrosion resistance and is tough enough the edge won't chip out. 440C offers a good performing steel at a good price. Finally it can easily sharpened. Don't confuse 440C with lower quality 440A you find on low end knives. 440C is quality steel that has a good balance of edge holding, toughness and corrosion resistance that has stood the test of time

- Good blade - with coating
Great blank. I added cocobolo scales and mosaic pins and looks good. One thing to note, and it's not entirely clear in the photo (or I just missed it) that this blade has some type of coating on the bottom of the blade and the top by the serrations. If you look close you can see it, I thought it was just shadows. It also runs all along the edge.

- Pleased and surprised
Very happy with the looks of the blank. I was surprised at how hard the steel seems to be on this one.,,, as far as I'm aware it's 440c steel... I wanted to use some bigger mosaic pins on my knife so I tried to drill the pin holes from 3/16 to 5/16.... I tried 3 different drill bits. And still didn't get through it so I'm settling with steel pins. Not too upset but I'd love to figure out why the damn thing is so hard!!!
