On the topic of blanks.... Is there such a thing as a "Blank" that has already been cut to fit an existing folder??
What I am thinking of is this: Could a knife maker.. expert or novice, get a blade "blank" that would fit in his Spyderco handle or work is his Benchmade Auto, which he could then use to create his own semi-custom knife.
I'm not especially interested in being flamed if you think this is a stupid idea...
but I would be curious to know if it would be considered an insult of a form of flattery by some of the manufacturers
