So the next time you wear out an old table or circular saw blade, dont throw it away, make a knife blade!
I just found a template online for a primitive skinning knife and size it properly for your blade. Then trace it onto blade and cut out. We used a torch for this one, but you can use a drill press and then just grind it down to shape.
Keeping to the theme, I used some 16p nails for the pins to keep the scales in place. Two part epoxy to glue together. There is crushed stone inlay in a big knot in the walnut scale. Was going to leave it but decided to fill it in.
Super sharp as its good strong steel and the tormek took care of the rest. Shaped scales on a spindle sander.
