I hate waste, especially good blade steel. This cutie was forged from a 3/16 x 1/4 x 4 in. piece of saw mill blade. The scrap was produced from a project in progress for another forum member Blade edge is 2 3/4 in. from point to ricasso. I plan to use an antler tine for the handle and maybe some hard wood for spacers. We'll see. I thought I'd share. Thanks for looking and as always, suggestions and comments are welcome.
