Due to a back surgery, all sales are limited to stock on hand. Please call before ordering to make sure we have what you want. I should be back up and running before Christmas. Thanks for your patience and hope to talk with you soon.
Blades Ground by Gene Martin, Bladesmith.
All blades are ground to 220 and heat treated. They will arrive with a surface discoloration from the heat treat process. You will need to finish the blades out to whatever desire of polish you wish. I recommend starting with 320 wet and dry paper and working up to 600. 600 grit puts a nice satin finish on a working blade.
For more information about finishing the blades see my FAQ page and read the blade finishing information on www.engnath.com.
I will custom fit bolsters to your blade for an additional $25. Other services, such as machine finishing to a higher grit, and tapered tangs, are available for an extra charge.
