After inspiration of several jocks I went in pursuit of these. I got several old HSS saw blades from my friend Bruce.
He has a farm in South Texas. I visit and we shoot the shit. While doing that there is always a piece of wood that needs to be made smaller. Hence the knives.
One of the knives is viking style (rope handle) while the other is more contemporary (maple handle).
The viking style is all metal, while the one with the wood handle is a glue up sandwich. See the blade pic 5.
I must say that the HSS was very easy to work with as is does not seem to lose it’s temper when being cut with an angle grinder. I used a 1/16” thick, 4.5 in dia blade in the grinder. Cut real easy and sharpened up real nice on the Tormek water wheel.
