    Any custom knife maker's that would like to have knife blanks cut out on a Laser, please feel free to contact me. I can do large quantity's, or small. If you have a sketch of a knife, and want to email it to me, I can then reproduce it in AutoCadd, and cut it out on the laser. This is what I do to my knife blanks. I will post a example of the process. Thanks,
    Email-} holy_ghost_joe@yahoo.com
    I can also heat treat/surface grind the blanks if need be, if they are made of tool steel's. Stainless can be cut on the laser, but heat treating will have to be done another place. Thanks,

    Joe Spivey.

    What kind of info do you need so that someone could get a estimate on price. Drawing, CAD file? Thanks for any info you can provide.

    Just to give an idea of what we charge. A 9 inch knife blank I can cut for around $0.80 cents, to a buck depending on thickness/holes/ect. You supply the metal and shipping. I have a vast ammount of A2/D2/O1 tool steel here at the shop, so if you don't have the metal maybe I will. Just leave me a email at my website. Thanks,

    Joe.

    Joe,

    I am amazed!!! To laser cut a blade up to 9 inches (excluding holes, etc…) for about a $1.00 (depending on thickness), seems as if you are doing volunteer work.

    I just do not see how you can afford to do it for this price. How can you cover your expenses (your time, shop materials--electricity, setup, etc…) for such a low amount.

    I have two questions:

    1) What you are saying is, if I were to send you the above drawing, a bar of 440-C stainless steel (10? x 2? x 3/16?), and about $4.00 (to cover laser cutting and return postage), I would get my blade laser cut???

    2) Most important, can 440-C stainless steel and other “air hardened? S.S. be cut by laser without being hardened around the cutting process? I do a lot a file art by hand and I use jeweler files and they are very expensive and I do not have any facilities to re-anneal the steel if it does get hardened.

    For a knife to be truly “handmade," the knife must be held to the tool or the tool must be held to the knife during its making… if it’s a “hands-off" operation, it ain’t handmade…
