A lot of the steels being used in the blades are coming from overseas my friend. Tons of it from Japanese foundries like AUS 8 steels that are commonly used in knives in this price range.

JD - What about the Mil-Tac knives? They may fill this need.

The OTF Microtech are not intended to be projected puncture weapon. I have several Benchmade automatics and assisted opening knives. They are great. But, no comparison to my Microtechs. If you don't like OTF their other autos are bada--

I saw this thread pop up again and thought.
This guy should have a Ruana Fixed. Made in Montana, family thing (read their history)

I like mine. Doesn't look to be a current model.

Ocassionally there is some true customs (limited or unique)

Then I thought.... he also needs one of these (truly beautiful blades).

But, you might want to try your build with one of these

I feel the Randall Made Knife, Orlando, Florida is the best but you can't touch one for $250.00 or less, add at least another $100.00-150.00. Fixed blade knives only, but the best for hunting, fishing, fighting, all around.

I just picked up a Spyderco Endura 4 plain edge. Great knife! I used my Sharpmaker to put a back bevel on it.

hey full auto, I just looked at the Randle link mentioned above and found this page for you. Pretty Simple overview of knife making (from scratch).

http://www.randallknives.com/construction.php

And there are the links for blades to finish into knives.
Keep us posted on your progress.
