Ye got my attention with a knife. I just can't pass up knives at a show. Don't collect them. But, I sure do accumulate them. Be sure to post pictures of all this neat stuff yer bangin' on when it's done. BTW, I had to replace a mower blade yesterday. The store said they throw away old blades in large numbers. Multiply that by all the places that sell blades. Sure seems like a huge waste. The steel is mighty tough stuff, I wonder how good it would be for knives. Same with brush hog blades. Betcha if ye made the rounds of places that sell that stuff you could rummage in their waste pile and get tons of good forging steel free.
