Made this knife from an old table saw disc, i have wanted to made a knife for a while, but never had the time.
i still dont, but i did it anyway.
so i used and old 10 in disc and cut it out with a grinder, then shaped in a disc sander and i used my Moms, rim car grill to do the tempering, i used a fan to heat it up till the metal was red hot.
when it was time to quench it in oil i forgot to use a glove, so i lost most of my hand hairs, but other that that nothing happened, and i learned a good lesson.
the pins i got them from a old printer rods that i disassemble, and yes they are not aligned, that happens for not using an awl to mark the holes.
i did the sheath as well, some old leather that i had lying around.
the sharpening was done by my Dad, as i do not know hot to sharp tools!
i made them duller instead.
