Economy - 9" DROP POINT BLADE Damascus - Buck Skinner
Economy - 9" DROP POINT HUNTER BLADE Damascus. Buck Skinner
The traditional Drop Point style is only surpassed by its sharpness and the beauty of the Damascus pattern in the steel. This 9" blank is the perfect size for work in the field or the kitchen. Ground finger groves give you better control of the knife as well as providing for an ergonomic grip.
These blanks are full length Damascus (Not the cheap etched blades that many people are passing off as genuine Damascus blades. These blades have a high carbon core then over 250 layers of folded carbon steel with a high nickle content on top. These blanks will sharpen and hold an edge like mad. We recommend washing and drying after use and then placing a couple of drops of oil to prevent rusting (Food Safe Oil recommended). The Nickle makes for a high contrast between layers. You can bring out the contrast in areas that were not dipped (Gray areas - end of handle) with a mild acid mixture or by leaving it sit in a coke for 3-4 hours. Be sure to neutralize the acid, clean and oil before using. Do not try this until you read more about etching process on the front page of www.woodworldtx.com under Etching Damascus in the menu on the left of the page.
