    Thank you for your interest in WAS Knives! I have included a basic list reflecting the current models, base prices, and various options which reflect an increase in final price. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
    Base prices reflect 1/8” O-1 or A2 steel and include base micarta handles, liners.

    All measurements are approximate. Although all of these knives are created from each respective pattern, there are variances that occur with grinding each blade by hand.

    Various options:
    Upgrade steel (CPM154, D2,etc) $20
    Tapered tang $40
    Bolsters (wood or synthetic) $40
    Bolsters (metal) $50
    Stabilized wood $40+
    Bone or stag $30+
    Sambar Stag $100+
    Exotics (mammoth ivory/tooth) varies
    Filework $30 per inch
    Mosaic pin $10 each

    *****Disclaimer***** Prices are subject to change at anytime. IF there is a particular knife that had already been listed available for a certain price and it is still available, I will honor the price listed in that thread. Also, warranty does not apply to WARPING, CRACKING, CHECKING, OF NATURAL MATERIALS*******
