Maybe I should do that with my 36” saw blade!

Makes for a wicked looking knife. How do you cut a saw blade?

Cut marks on the blade says he used a dremel with cutting disc.

I once had hunting knife made from a large hacksaw blade. Super good steel.

I have a few hunting knives made from old saw blades. My favorite skinner my pop made in high school shop class in the late 50s out of a piece of broken 2 man cross cut saw blade. The older high carbon steel will take a razors edge. I have a few finger planes for tuning braces on acoustic guitar tops and backs with irons made from saw blades. If your interested I have quite a few circular saw blades that are every bit of 40-50 years old and good high carbon steel id do some bargining with for a knife. Nice work!

Love the idea (and will probably steal it!!! Ha ha ha). Leaving the teeth makes for an impressive looking piece though you might want to knock off the points a bit to keep yourself safer! Thanks for sharing!!

Looks good. Do the teeth play hell getting it into a sheath? You might consider acid etching which will help defend against rust.
