So I am still watching videos of knife making (forged in fire is not helping). Has any one ever used a circular saw blade to make a knife. Supposedly one can be made that does not need heat treating if one does it the old slow manual way, hacksaw and file. Watched a video the other night the guy made a beauty that was razor sharp. May be a winter project.

I would use a blade from a power hacksaw, already has the shape to start with and most likely a better metal to form a knife from.

Some good videos on you tube. I have no forge but one can take there time and make one cutting and filing as to not overheat the metal. I also see skate blades being used, one would already have the curl in the end. Its going to be my winter project.

I did that years ago, but honestly I was not impressed. I have two from there. I am a buck guy, back when they made the real buck knifes. I used to pick them up in the US when I was in the military. The new buck knifes are not the same. I have a collection more than firearms. This is just a winter project. Have a wood shop and some old circular blades laying around.

Understand. I found them good but that is me

I liked the bucks also and still have four vintage ones here my 119 and 118 which will die with me ( have ties to my dad) and a 110 and a 103 that were not used much

 Sadly I bought all black handles at the time sad.png

I remember checking them a few years ago on the buck stamping chart and three were 72-86 and the 118 61-67??

They are all made in USA. Never bought any after they went over seas since what I had was fine Not sure what year that was

Was told years ago never to leave a buck knife get real dull and you will have no problem sharpening it which many guys had issues with years ago and screwed a lot of good knives on the grinder

 Cheers
