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.
**We now offer sheath kits that you can purchase separately to pair with your favorite knife blanks. The recommended sheath for this knife blank is our Sheath Kit #2, Sheath Kit #3 and Sheath Kit #11.
**For those of you who prefer not to make a sheath kit we also offer made in the USA completed sheaths. These completed sheaths are the same as the kits, except assembled for you by us. The sheath(s) for this knife would be Sheath Style #2, Sheath Style #3 and Sheath Style #11.
**And for even more convenience we offer fully completed made in the USA sheaths. These sheaths have been dyed brown by us so they are ready to go! The sheath(s) for this knife would be Brown Sheath Style #2, Brown Sheath Style #3 and Brown Sheath Style #11.
NOTE: The blade pictured is typical of the pattern and style knife blank you are ordering. The pattern will not be exactly shown as the pattern will vary slightly from blade to blade as it does with all Damascus steel knives. These blades are already heat treated and etched.
NOTE: These Damascus blades have a mild steel tang handle welded to the Damascus blade. This handle is well behind where any bolster would be. This is a common practice to save the additional expense of having a Damascus steel tang that is covered by a handle and would not show anyway. The handle strength is not compromised with this method and the mild steel will be just as strong, maybe stronger than the Damascus portion of the blade.
