hi all,
is it possible to find a good quality full tang knife blade for under 20? i have looked everywhere and they all sem to be around the 40 mark and for that price i could get a nice knife. im looking for something with a relatively short, wide blade. looking to make a skinner.
thanks,
Aaron

Yes it is, a 12c27 blade for 15 delivered from here http://www.moonrakerknives.co.uk/knifeblades.htm its the MOON BLADE II near the bottom of the page...NO affiliation with this company but a happy costumer for many years.

I think Ronnie Sunshine does a mora full tang blank for cheap. Looks good quality too. Seem to remember someone on here showing a knife they'd made from the same blank and it looked better than good.

It's not serrated It's just the picture,I got one and it's a superb blade. It's the same blade ronnie sunshines does but he adds postage and with moonraker postage is free so the price you see is the price you pay.

Hey, try these guys
http://www.knifemaking.com/Default.asp
they are pretty good, had stuff off them ages ago an it was all top quality, i've now lost the green river knife to my better half an she swears by it in the kitchen an their supply of handle materials is unsurpassed, delivery was fine too.. no problems at all but did cost me import tax but i was not much considering how much i got.

Aaron: I bought a Opinel slim 12cm very sharp and great for skinning and filleting.

Thats a nice site, many thanks, been thinking of making another knife.
Is it better to buy steel or carbon if you want to use it with a flint.
Thanks

Carbon blades will produce a spark with flint, stainless won't. Both will produce sparks on ferro rods. :)
