The 1095HC Damascus Steel Skinner Knife Blank is hand crafted to produce a blade and bolstering, and you can make your own handle exactly how you like it. Damascus for this knife was created by forge welding multiple layers of steels into a Solid block called a billet (15N20 &1095 High Carbon Tool Steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the Steel.The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility, toughness and produces invisible serrations on the blade that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 55-60 HRC on Rockwell scale. The handle is full tang, completely raw and void of a grip.*Must be 18 years or older to buy*Specifications Overall Length: 7 Inches Blade Length: 3 Inches Blade Material: Japanese 1095 High Carbon, 15N20 Alloy Steel Blade Thickness: 5mm Tang Hole Size: 4mm Bolstering: Damascus Steel, 15mm Thickness Handle Tang Length: 4 Inches
