    Knifemaker's Specials!!!!!

    FOR SALE!


    Martell Sujihiki blanks




    Qty. 4 (available)

    Rc 60-61 (Fully Hardened)

    Thickness - 3/32"

    Blade Length - 300mm

    Blade Height (at heel) - 45mm

    These are only up for sale because they're western.

    Ready to be ground, although you might want to tweak the profile to remove the waterjet tooling marks, etc first and maybe convert to a hidden tang.... or leave as is - Your choice!

    Price - $75 each (shipping $9 in the USA)
    International OK but must pay actual shipping costs......& please don't ask for quotes.







    Wood Scale Sets




    Wood Type - Unknown (I think they're maybe maple but I really have no idea)

    Length - 5" (roughly)

    Thickness - 3/8" (roughly)

    These scale sets were bought many years ago when I first started out, before I realized that I prefer thicker scales. They're OK but not at all what I would call premium, more like lookers.....know what I mean? I priced them accordingly.

    Price - $15 each (shipping $6 in the USA)
    International OK but must pay actual shipping costs......& please don't ask for quotes.




    If interested in any of these items please shoot me a PM (or email) with how many of what details along with your email address (for Paypal) and if international please also include your country name as well.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Use nothing coarser than 600 grit paper....you'll have arms like Arnold by the end of the summer....maybe a few callouses too lol.

    If you're thinking about grinding a hardened blade by hand, well, it sure isn't going to make for a fun summer...

    A handle is doable with hand tools and sandpaper though it will take some time for sure.

    To add in power maybe consider a cheap-o 1x30 belt sander, they can be had for (last time I looked) $30-$40. This will be challenging to get good results from because there's limited availability of metal removing (ceramic) belts and the machine isn't really meant to do this level of heavy work but it's likely a lot better than trying to do it by hand.
