I am currently bidding on a knife blank that is being described as a pure carbon Sabatier blank from the original Thiers factory. We shall see. I put a max of 20 dollars on it, and it ends in an hour or so, it will be very cool if it is the genuine article, and the finished knife will be photographed from beginning to end.

I also saw these but decided to stay away due to all the unknowns.

Any info on what stage these reached? Have they been heat treated?

I'm want to take on a similar project but i think i'm going to start with blanks from a modern source. As a newb I don't want to get in over my head :)

DevinT did some years ago and showed the process. It was a lot of work... They need ground, heat treated then finished.

I have it bookmarked. I'm sitting on a couple in various forms of being ground. I'm in overhead on them but that is me. :D

Yes, it looks like its just the blank, I got it pretty cheap, so I am not too concerned about what needs to be done. I have all of the equipment to do the finishing work, and I am certain I can get the heat treat handled locally. Should be here in a few days, I may not get around to even working on it for some time, but if it's the real deal it's pretty cool, and if not, meh, it was a cheap knife blank that I can make a camp knife out of.

Got the blank today. It is definitely heat treated, completely coated in carbon scale. It's a nice full tang blank, with the right shape, and the original sabatier round bolster. Looks good, and I will start the grind next week.

Hey cool. Eager to see how this turns out for you. I noticed that listing as well.

Not sure if you noticed but the seller said they had the original factory rivets too.
