Kit for crafting a knife with handle and sheath.
This knife making kit is an easy way to make a stylish knife to your own and comes complete with material for the handle and a leather sheath.
The blade is made of carbon steel 1095, a classic among knife steels, which is tough but very easy to sharpen and has a solid service life.
1095 is an unalloyed and stainless tool steel with a hardness of 52 – 56 HRC Rockwell and a carbon content of 0.90 to 1.03 % with a manganese content of 0.3 to 0.5 %. A blade made of 1095 carbon steel is hard, flexible and break-resistant.
However, we recommend keeping the knife blade dry and treating it occasionally with a little oil to prevent rust.

Knife blade 19 cm x 2,5 cm / cutting edge 10 cm
