Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Bought a few unfinished blades from David Boye this fall. These are cast dendritic steel, similar to Stellite. Won't rust and supposed to hold a great edge !!!! I did the handle work. Even though I've done leather work since the late 60's, I sent the finished knives to Rob Kellenberger in Texas and he made the sheaths faster, better, and cheaper than I could do.
