    I've upgraded my opinion of these blades since my April review of the smallest. I've now got a set of 3 excellent kitchen knives which rival any we've owned over the last 40 years. I've enjoyed every minute of the learning process & have made a matched set of knives using salvaged English, American & European Oak with pins & lanyard pins made from aluminium, brass , copper, SS & even wooden dowels with pins through the centre. Cutting, shaping & fitting the scales was great fun & I even put blue plastic liners on the mid-sized blade with filework along the spine. I also made a knifeblock by gluing together various offcuts of scrap wood. This learning project turned out so well that I've just bought another set of these. It IS possible to put a good edge on these by doing a slow. Careful freehand grind on a belt sander. The only drawback to these blades is they don't hold a good edge for very long but that is true of most knife sets under £50. To get a 3 knife set as unusual looking as these would set you back hundreds of pounds & I can't recommend these highly enough at only £12 for the 3. Even with the other materials required plus electricity this set cost under £35. Several people have seen them & been fascinated by their appearance & the fact that they are uniique. Apologies for the verbosity but I really am over the Moon with these blades - try some yourself & see! (Posted on )

    I got these because I am new to knifemaking as a potential hobby for when I retire next year. i've seen them criticised for poor steel, edge quality & finish but at £11 for 3 I don't think you can go wrong if you want to practise without wasting cash. I'm making my own Micarta for scales & have also found that a piece of microbore flexible copper pipe is a perfect fit for the smallest blade, being 8mm diameter & 6mm bore. Using this I've made a lanyard pin, a mosaic pin with various sizes of electric cable & another mosaic pin with 6mm brass through the center. I've altered the shape of the handle with a bit of subtle grinding & am so far very pleased with my progress. I look forward to moving onto the bigger blades soon. These blanks are perfect to learn with. Thanks HH for good service & value! (Posted on )

    Great deal if you want to practice making a knife or just want to make a set for occasional use.

    The steel isn't great and the pin holes are way too large, but for what you are paying it's great value.

  6. For beginners onlyReview by

    These blades are horrid. The steel is a pain to sharpen and the ergonomics are terrible.

    On the good side. For a tenner you get three blades to work on. If you want to learn how to assemble a knife these are perfect for practice. The handle shape will test your skill at shaping and the recurve blades will test your sharpening skills.

    Don't buy if you want a good user knife....buy a condor blade for instance. But if you are starting out these are a cheap way to build up your skills. If you ruin the blades working on them, all they have cost is the price of a pint and a chicken kebab.

  8. DO NOT BUYReview by
    Rating
    DO NOT BUY these blank under absolutely any circumstances you will regret it. I bought these blanks myself and I can honestly say they are junk. But allow me to elaborate. The first and most obvious problem is the size of the tang holes, which are 8mm 9mm and 10mm from smallest blade to largest. There is absolutely no reason for the tang holes to be so large and the fact that they are weakens the tang considerably, in fact I snapped the smallest blade at the center tang hole while dry fitting a mocked up handle. The second and not so problem is the steel type. These blanks are listed only as stainless steel, no type is given at all so it could be anything. That said looking at the grain structure after the tang snapped it is extremely course to the point of looking like sanding paper. As I said before DO NOT BUY these blanks I did and I wholeheartedly regret it.

    Heinnie to their credit offered to send me a replacement set but I hope they do not waste their time or mine in doing so because i would just throw them in the trash where they belong as I do not deem them worth even the postage it would cost me to send the replacement set back to Hiennie.

    Take my advice and spend the extra on the Condor or K&G blanks instead.
    Not even worth one star but that's the lowest I can rate.

Hi What is the best method to harden and temper these stainless steel blades and is it better to put your finished edge on the blde first !
A:
There are lots of different ways dependent upon equipment and resources available. You tube is best source for all different techniques and you can match to what you have . Oil and oven is probably the best, leave finishing to the end
