Well here is the third Knife I've ever made.

Since I recently accuired 700' of Bandsaw Blade coil stock, and I always head that it makes nice fillet knifes...

Why not?

I need to redo the handle, I showed the pretty side.

Brass I have for pins is a little hard and bent.

Rather then flatten, cracking the other side.

All in all though they do make nice Blades.

I can shave with this one!

Really just wants to straighten on its own, give it tweak this or that.

This is new/old blade stock.

As well as being the out side radius.

On a short section not to hard to get her straight.

Just my fingers more or less.

Its only a .032 thick.

I'm pretty impressed!

Got a good bit of bend, it can however keep it , but a flex this way and that straight as can be.

Interesting! I have a band off my saw mill that I wrecked a few teeth on, Perry much worthless. I wonder if I could get a knife out of it.

Really depends on the type of blade.

Bi-metal well great for saw blades is not so great for a knife.

These blades are 3/4" x .032" old stock.

They are not Bi-metal.

You can use Bi-metal but again you'll have better outcome with a non bi-metal.
