hello fellas...i am new to knife making, and this is my first knife and sheath build. a friend used to work at a heat treat place that did knife blanks and he gave me a bunch to mess with. i have a bench-top jet belt grinder that uses a 1x42 belt. the handle wood is some mahogany i had laying around. the sheath is .060 Concealex....i just figured i would show, as it's my first build. peace, randy.

Doug, a friend of mine worked for a heat-treat in Michigan that done heat treat for a company called Olsen knifes. he told me they came in by the tons in big pallet boxes that needed a lift truck to pick up. i am unsure of the material or the hardness, or if the Olsen company is still around. he got them like over 20 years ago. randy.
