The Seal Pup is a classic fixed blade military-inspired knife. It is available in 2 different metals. 1095 (high carbon) and 14C28N (stainless). This is a knife blank, meaning that it's 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.
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.
