Important Notes: We also sell an extra large leather sheath that fits this item (sold separately). The sheath must say “EXTRA LARGE” in the title, in order to fit this blank. As this item is very large, we do not offer handle material that fits it. It will require 5-1/2″ x 2″ handle material, if you want to make the handle using just one piece on each side. You may, however, use several pieces of our 5″ x 1.5″ handle material to make up the handle.
This beautiful blade is handmade from high quality 1095 steel. 1095 is a high carbon steel (not a stainless steel) commonly used in heavy duty tools. It can carry an extremely sharp edge. 1095 makes great steel for heavy duty choppers and survival knives because of its extreme durability and resistance to chipping, easy sharpening and edge retention. It is much tougher than premium stainless steels. Because it is a high carbon steel, it is very important to keep it clean and oiled. Take extra care to store a knife made of 1095 out of its sheath (this is a good idea for all knives) and keep a thin layer of lubricant on the steel.
This knife blank is custom designed by us and 100% hand-forged.
Blank filework may vary or be absent. We try to keep them all consistent but sometimes the filework may vary or be absent.
