This is a sizable knife for cutting and chopping. Buy it now, you'll love it. This knife is available in .098" 14C28N stainless and 1095 .125".
This is a knife blank, meaning that its a thick piece of metal cut in the shape of a knife; it isn't sharp and there is no handle. Your job is to turn it into a beautiful knife.
We highly recommend using our 14C28N stainless option for our kitchen knives. The stainless will offer better corrosion resistance and last longer in the kitchen. Otherwise we still offer our 1095 which is still a good all around steel option.
All knife quality steels are annealed to make shaping your knife easier. Steel will need to be heat treated(hardened) in order to keep an edge.
