Review of: Fighter Blade
I ordered one of these to do a little knife making with my son. The blade seems nice enough. It's got decent heft, and it will flex and return to true. We haven't started putting the handle on it yet, but I'm feeling optimistic about the project. For less than twenty bucks, I'm really pleased.

Review of: Damascus Sgian Dubh Blade
Back when ACC offered the Scottish dirk in damascus steel as well, I bought a pair each of those and this blade. My brother was getting married, and the had a Scottish wedding, so I felt like he and I should have a matching set for the occasion. These finished out great with English yew and sterling silver. The layered steel is gorgeous and will take and hold a wicked edge.

Review of: Wood Kukri Handle
It's in pretty good shape. It's definitely worth $8. I haven't done anything with it yet but I'm sure when I sand it and put linseed oil on it, it will look really good.

Review of: Laguiole Knife Kit
I have assembled several pocket knife kits and this is, by far, the best one I have done. The price is excellent.

Review of: Arkansas Toothpick Blade - 12"
Well, it is appropriately wrapped in oil and plastic with construction paper outer cover for safety. I can't wait to get to work on this. The photo on your on website does not serve it justice. This is a truly nice toothpick blade. The rat tail tang is more robust than I expected, so this will be a great addition to my outdoor collections. I plan to make a walnut coffin style handle which I think is historically accurate. Thanks a bunch for the fine quality blade!

Review of: Longleaf Traditional Kukri Blade
Absolutely beautiful. Once I cleaned the grease off the steel it stuck me thstvthis is a physical piece of history in my hands. Very humbling. I will absolutely be purchasing more of these beautiful blades.

Review of: Bhojpure Traditional Kukri Blade
The blade was in great shape and well protected in grease. Once it was cleaned up I took a file to the edge checking the temper. The spine is soft and the edge was very hard, perfect for a big chopper. The next few days were spent mounting it on a horn handle and making a leather sheath. After putting a shaving sharp convex edge on the blade (which didn't take much) it was ready to go. Oak, Hickory and Elm have been getting cleared off of our property ever since, the edge still shaves!

Review of: Damascus Large Skinner Blade
Beautiful blade for the money. Haven't made it up or sharpened it yet. I wondered if the remainder of the tang is also Damascus . In hafting blades I buy, I usually reduce the tang, attach a bolt and either use a metal butt cap or embed the tang in epoxy. A reverse curve on a skinning knife may look good but negates a lot of the curve of the cutting edge. Look at the old and current skinning knives used by people who flay countless animals. All use a straight grip that is a continuation of the blade just in front of the rear end of the blade.
