Looks great and really professional! But why do you guys make your own blades, it seems easier to just buy one rather than find the right piece of steel and file it to perfection hmmm

probablly because you would get more pleasure out of using a knife you have made your self than one bought in :thumbs:

Well finally finished the knife and Im rather pleased with the outcome. What started out as an old saw blade has been recycled into something completely new and individual

The chances are that yes if just left and not looked after it would rust, but that isnt going to happen ;)
