    Had some forge time today, and knocked this little guy out. Still have a long way to go as far as cleaning things up, but it's heat treated and tempered. Forged from a ball bearing race.

    Those field scalpels look like they'd be a joy to use, and I like what you've done with your mark on the sheaths.

    Thanks guys! I'm assuming that it's annealed as it looks like it's been saw cut. They really don't know more than that it's D2 steel, it came from a local stamping plant that closed it's doors, they used it for the die's. Will it work well in it's annealed state or should it be heat treated? A file should be able to tell me approximately how hard it is, correct? If it will make a good knife I'll pick up some smaller pieces of it as well. There was all kinds of it there, I'm gonna find out how much it is before I decide on the huge piece, Doug thanks for the dimensions of a block that will work well. Again, thanks for all the help.
