IntegralKnives.com is a personal gallery presentation of a collection focusing on integral custom knives.
An integral knife is made out of a solid piece of steel. Everything but the handle material is shaped (forged or through stock removal grinding) without any single soldered part. It is all solid from the tip to the butt. This way of making knives is considered as one of the most demanding and time consuming.
A “full integral knife” does include a knife’s butt, whilst a “semi-integral” only includes bolsters and guard.
