Add a handle and give it a final sharpening!
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.
