I am now making some of my blades (and other tools) with the BCUK leaf on them. These are ONLY available on the forum and at BCUK meets. As I have items ready for sale I'll stick them up here
so, following the Moot I have a few blades left and they are looking for a new home(s) I will put a couple of other things in separate threads in this section too btw.
The small blades are made from my preferred 1.1% steel and are selectively tempered, so you can file/grind/drill the tangs and blade spines quite happily. The prices include UK postage and PayPal fees.
the stick tangs are £35 and the full tang is £40, NOW £30 AND £35 RESPECTIVELY
Also I have this parang blade. £65 delivered NOW £60 DELIVERED. It's made from CS80CrV2, a high carbon spring steel that I am enjoying right now. Again, the spine and tang are tempered back and on this one the thickness tapers from about 7mm at the tang to 3mm at the tip, full flat forged blade by the front end, but the first couple of inches is a little thicker behind the edge to allow for a wide bevel to be sharpened on. So as FGYT would put it, a flandi grind blending into a full flat with a convex edge further down; Ideal multi-edged blade format?
These are all I have a present and I'll not be making any more for a few months I shouldn't think as I'm a bit busy with shows etc until the end of the summer at least! So get them while they are hot, so to speak
