What a find! It's not often we come across old Windlass blade blank surplus. Every one is hand forged and finished of high carbon steel. Due to the handmade nature, there will be some with irregularities, possibly a bit of surface rust and marks/scratches from long-term storage, but nothing major that affects your work or the performance once they're finished. Lots of reenactment potential, collectible and practical uses for each style. Of course, the price reflects that, but the best part is they were very popular historic patterns from old ACC catalogs. None have a sharp edge so you can customize your own. Supplies are limited. All are 3/16" thick. Thin Dagger Blade- diamond cross section, tapered full tang, partially threaded. 12-1/2" overall, 8-1/4" blade.
