    I am looking for someone that can grind and profile/bevel 30 stainless steel blanks. The blanks are made of 154 CMP stainless steel, they are .150" thick, and the actual cutting edge is just over 2" on each side. Please see the attached photo. Please contact me if you are interested in this project. The blades have not been heat treated yet, they will not to be heat treated and sharpened too. I have found a company that will heat treat them, but I would like to keep as many steps as possible in house with one service provider.

    Please contact me at [email protected]

    Thanks View attachment 583803

    I have a Bowie I started (still blank) and need it ground, I would do it but at present I am unable. It is quite large, A2 tool steel, 3/16". 17.5" overall with a 13" blade, 2.5" at the thickest, clip pointed.

    I am looking to do a flat grind in the blade and partial flat on the clip point.

    I can send a pic of the blank which was cut on a waterjet, edges are very clean.

    If your intrested let me know.

    I'm pricing out making some knives for me and a couple friends. When I get ready to do this project, I'll have three knife blanks that will need to be ground and heat treated. Basic tanto style blade, flat grind on all three. Pretty basic. they would be with either W2 or A2 tool steel. I haven't decided yet. Anyway, I would like to know if you still offer services and how much it would cost to get all three knives done? And, what would be the price if I ground them myself and just had you heat treat them?

    My email is [email protected]

    Thank you!
