Hidden Tang Hunting Knife Template.

Embarking on an unconventional journey, I made a pivotal shift from Graphic Design to the captivating realm of bladesmithing. Over a span of 13 years, I dedicated myself to honing my skills, eventually earning the esteemed title of Mastersmith in the American Bladesmith Society. Having crafted knives for an international audience, I am thrilled to impart my knowledge through a series of downloadable PDF knife designs.

The next installment in this series is the Hidden Tang Hunting Knife Template.

Before we dive into the details, let's clarify the concept of a hidden tang knife. A hidden tang knife is characterized by its unique design, where the blade's tang, the section extending into the handle, is discreetly concealed within the handle material.

Here are the specifications for this particular design:

  • Overall length: 226,8 mm
  • Blade width: 32.8 mm
  • Blade length: 114 mm
  • Blade thickness at the ricasso: 5 mm

Designed with both comfort and ergonomics in mind, this template emphasizes the importance of a handle that ensures ease of use even during extended periods.

The versatility of the agile drop-point design on display here never fails to impress.

In the realm of knifemaking, hidden tang hunting knives serve as a testament to the harmonious fusion of artistry and functionality. These knives provide knifemakers with a unique canvas for their creative expressions, delivering not only a comfortable grip but also balanced weight distribution, durability, and a subtle yet formidable strength. Knifemakers who venture into the craft of hidden tang knives can tap into a market that values both the pragmatic and aesthetic aspects of their work. So, the next time you find yourself at the forge, consider the magnetic allure of the hidden tang – it might just become the centerpiece of your next masterpiece.

Printing the templates is crucial, as it adds a tactile element to the crafting process. You can find these templates on my website or designated platforms, inviting all those interested in the art of knifemaking. As you embark on this journey, remember to prioritize safety and follow the provided guidelines. Your knifemaking adventure begins now – happy knifemaking!
