Thread: damascus blanks?

    damascus blanks?

    Does anyone know where you can get some reasonably priced Damascus knife blanks for kitchen style knives? Im not looking for any specific cut just kitchen cutlery in general. Everything i find seems to be pocket knife blanks.

    Randy, of this Parish, (HHH) sells larger blanks for kitchen knives. Very good prices too imho . Devin of course also sells a range of fabulous damascus in a range of materials. I think Delbert Ealy sells billets too. Welcome to the forum btw

    Devin Thomas damascus is probably the cleanest you will find anywhere, both in carbon and stainless.

    Wait, are you looking for thin barstock or precut knife blanks?

    pre-cut knife blanks. So the only thing Ill be needing to do is fabricate a handle and put on the final edge. I can etch it at well. Fabricating something out of a billet is far out of my realm.

    Del Ealy has told me he's put together a blank for a customer in the past.

    If you want the knife to perform well you will also need to grind in a taper and grind the blade face. I'm sure you could work something out with a maker here for them to do this work and leave the handle off.

    Yeah. You really can't call a knife-shaped bar with an edge a kitchen knife. What you're looking for is an unsharpened blade sans handle.

    Correct, thats why I said I only wanted to apply a final edge and handle. I guess thats not a "blank" then

    Im actually talking with HHH right now about a kiritsuke Gyuto- in carbon steel, his damascus was to much for me.
