If you're just looking to get an idea of prices for blades and things, then have a look at www.brisa.fi

 

I've bought stuff from them before and they seem fair. But - it's mass produced and not like some of the hand-crafted stuff Midnight and some of the boys on here do. HTH

to keep the cost down ,get hold of an old file you can anneal it ( heat it up to red hot then cool it slowly ) then you can shape it re harden it . There are plenty of videos on youtube also this site is very useful www.britishblades.com
