I made a set of felling dogs from a 16" tablesaw blade. High carbon steel, 2.6mm thick. A few good hours of cutting, drilling and hand filing but the result makes me happy. What do you guys think, how do they look?

Looks good. That second spike up from the bottom is the newest thing.
Thanks! It's a good idea. I was inspired by the west coast felling dogs but added a fourth spike, it's safer when cutting small diameter logs that can be pulled by the chain and hit the front end of the saw. The west coast dogs are not available in my country anyway so I had to make something similar.
