I thought there already was a thread on knives but can't find it. If anyone is looking for a source for kinfe blades, I found one by surprise. I bought a new blade for my power lawn edger and noticed the old blade was worn into a nice curve - hmmmm, might look good as a knife blade. I used a file to see how hard the steel was and the file would barely touch it. I went ahead and made this short bladed knife - 2 1/2" x 3/16" thick. Handle is 4 3/4 long, cherry. I had to weld a washer in the middle of the blade where it mounted on the edger. Turns out it took a really wicked edge. Still shaves hair after several chops into a piece of oak.
