Stainless Universal Knife Blank 8 inch
Length 8" .1875 thick
This is one of our new universal blank designs. We left a little extra material on the blade allowing knife makers to customize the final profile.
This is a high quality AEB-L stainless steel knife blank which can be used to create your own one of a kind masterpiece. We have the blanks available in stock. You can then grind the bevels, harden and add Bolsters as well as any type of knife handles. You can also be creative by adding blade texture or metal etching to craft your own one of a kind knife. Blank comes cut to shape with pre drilled pin holes. Pine holes should be reamed out to size prior to heat treating.
Please note this is not a beginner knife blank. AEB-L is considered one of the new super stainless steels. Its the same material they make razor blades from. Its durable, corrosion resistant and holds a great edge. Stainless steel does need to be heat treated in a Heat treating oven with precise time and temperature requirements. If you do not have a heat threating oven you can still take advantage of these quality corrosion resistant blanks by sending them out for hardening.
This knife was made from one of our universal knife blanks.
