This is a damascus kitchen knife blank. It is a left over from a project that fell through. It is fully annealed. It needs to be ground thinner. And there is a weakness in the tang that doesn't hurt the tang really but it means you need to grind away some of the heel to make sure the transition into the handle is solid. After doing tbat the blade will still be 4" I have no time or inclination to finish this so i would like to give it away. It is simple. You get the blade for free. I will even pay shipping. But i want to see progress pics here, and you need to do everything yourself: grinding ht and handle. I will advise for the ht and etching if required. So that's it. The first one to say so gets it.
