Looking for "kabar" style blank

Not sure if I am posting this in the right place?
Looking for a hand forged Kabar style blank. I would like it differentially hardened and made out of good carbon steel or tool steel. Doesn't need to be overly finished straight off the belt sander is fine.
If anyone has one for sale or is interested in making one PM me please

Going to need a bit more than that.
Are you after just a profile?
Do you want the blade bevel cut and shaped?
What thickness?
Blade length/dimensions?
Tang legnth/dimensions?
Any chance of a sketch of the profile you want?
What kind of steel? There's TONS that fit your description.

Sounds like i need to do a little more home work, but I would like the blade ground and shaped as well as differentially hardened. As far as style something similar to a standard GI issue kabar with or without the bloodgroove, 7" blade no serrations, partial bevel on the top. tang length 5". As far as tang size I am really not sure what works best to balance strength and ability to stack the leather on??Oh and blade thickness around .165"

Why on earth do you want someone to replicate a commercial knife? It's going to cost you more than buying a finished one or a commercially produced blank.
