Hey fellas,"and ladies" I have made horn handles and what-not in the past and just installed old blades. i am now starting to make some blades. I have all the machineing equipment, and just made a brake drum forge. Now here is my question. What steel is the best to use for an all purpose long lasting blade? I have made a couple so far from an old cross-cut saw blade, just had to form it out and sharpen. I have some time on my hands for a change, (not that kind of change either)-so i want to realy make some good tough high quality stuff. Thanks.
