A while ago I met someone who does CNC work locally and we talked about having him cut out blanks,I know some ways for cutting out blanks make some things a pain but I'm unsure about how well CNC works for my use. Also, how much does it cost for other ways to have blanks cut out? I won't likely be able to have blanks cut for a while but would like to get a idea for cost at other sources as well as this one so I don't dive into something I can't afford.
I usually make mid-size utility/hunting knives with ~1/8 carbon steel.
