Made this folding knife with a piece of steel and some ebony pen blanks. I used the band saw to harvest the ebony handles. Shaped and ground the steel on my Makita 3X21 belt sander. This was lot of fun. A great combination of steel and wood. Hope you folks like it.

Hi Jacob, I harvested steel from a used circular saw blade. You can get a few small knife blades from 7 1/4 inch old saw blade -:) Marked the blade for a rectangle with a sharpie and used my Bosch jig saw with a 24 TPI metal cutting blade. The knife blade shape is produced by an angel grinder and the belt sander.

That’s a really nice elegant looking knife, and I never would have thought of using an old circular saw blade, that’s genius, nice hard steel that will keep an edge, plentiful, and just the right thickness for a folding knife blade.
