Full tang oyster knife blank

Post by MJC » Mon Oct 21, 2019 3:45 pm

I am looking for a quality full tang Oyster knife blanks with guard. I am in the UK and have some creel boards fished out of the bottom of the North Sea from Scottish fisheries and want to put them to use. I also have a quantity of the Royal Navy teak kept for many years by the Navy as replacement decking for the Royal yacht which I want to put to use. I don't need many as my products are pretty much a minority pursuit and you can see some of the ideas on typenet.com

R. Murphy makes a ton of different ones. You could try contacting them about blanks only. Seems like a neat idea!

Many thanks. The Sheffield cutlers are all dying out. It was sitting on jockey type saddles without face masks grinding knives and ingesting the metal bits so these days it's much more difficult to get things made. I have just bought pieces from a the first operational fighter jet the Meteor but it will be made into keyrings and even then the steel will come from China.

So you're in the process of making oyster (shucking) knifes? If so you will have to keep us posted with the end result, I'd love to purchase one.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
