I saw something today that would be SO COOL!  Hinges made out of 2 horseshoes.  The ends of one horseshoe were curled back onto themselves and the ends of the other horseshoe were turned outward so they fit in the space created by the curled ends.  VERY cool looking!  I'll see if I can post a photo of them!

Started my first bush/camp knife.  It's going to my brother for all the free spring steel he gave me

Ok so here is a few question for you guys in the know with steel. I know files can make great knives etc.

What about wrenches, hammers, circle saw blades, pruners etc? I see this stuff at auction all the time and goes super cheap so I am always thinking about grabbing it for when I dive into steel one day.

I don't have a lot of experience carpsniper but i think that would be a great way to get started, the tools you mentioned would be high carbon alloys and can be forged into useful cutting  tool of your design.  As you gain more experience you could then order the specific stock for the right application.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Stuff goes cheap and before getting to the spendy metal, rail road spikes and old tools, mower blades etc.

I was looking at some shovels and I love ulu blades. So I might have to pick up some at the next auction :drool:

Files are good knife steel. Spring steel can be very good as well

Great list to have! Thanks!

Lots of the big sawmill circular saws are not the same base steel as the teeth. Sometimes the teeth are even carbide. But the base steel is often 5160, which is a decent performer but can rust terribly easily.

I just made a Damascus blade with a Nicholson file and some 1080 from a disc blade... not dissimilar enough, but if welded up great. Going to make a larger pukko out of it, I'll post a pic...

This is the polished Damascus blade...

First forged damascus. Nicholson file and 1080 disc blade. 18 layers. No nickle so it didn't etch very distinct, so I polished it.

Does anyone want to buy this? I can build a custom for you with it, your design input. Or you can build it yourself.

Otherwise I have other plans for it... Limited time offer! I have 3 jobs going, then after those I'm going to make a Puukko out of it and keep it in the family!

Rain....

Pardon the dumb question but how will it hold up as in the edge? My daughter is 8, just starting to shoot....maybe she needs a knife as well.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

It's 1080 and a Nicholson file, hardened really well, should be pretty darn excellent, actually.
