    Made my first knife today from an old circular saw blade. Didn’t anneal it and drilling was really hard, but came out ok in the end for a first try.

    Yep. This was a fun experiment, although i prefer an oval handle.

    Made this one for a bladescrounger swap last winter.

    My only home made knife, 5160 steel from a dodge Durango leaf spring, stock removal from 1/4" thick to a finished 1/8" thick. Stainless steel pins, radio antenna lanyard tube, bubinga scales.

    @Broke , love that grip design. Very "Siembida-ish" which is always a good thing!

    Thanks! I traced the handle on my Condor Bushlore and then let the belt sander dictate the form. I miss that knife, sent it out as part of the blade scrounge rs build and exchange.
