    heat treating ulu's made from saw blades

    Aiden how do you straighten warped blades?

    My first Leather sheath.

    Your sheath looks really good. Stitching is very uniform and straight. If you are not going to have a loop around the handle, I like for my sheath to be a little longer so the knife can go in deeper. I like for about 2 fingers of the handle to stick out the top so there is no chance of it falling out. Over all it looks great. Doug Jn. 3:16

    A good belt grinder under 300$ ?

    I believe I would go ahead and drill the pin holes in the handle and screw the blade down with a screw just to be sure the blade couldn't get thrown when i was grinding. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HMnTEJxaz8&t=6s

    knife hardness

    Kreg, Matthew Parkinson of Dragons Breath Forge sells an 8 piece comparative hardness test chisel set 50HRC to 64HRC. They go up 2 points of hardness for each one. Like the rest of these guys have said it is more than just a number. Hardness will need to be different for different kinds of knives. Their purposes, grinds. Whether you want an easier to sharpen knife or one that will hold an edge longer. I want to make 2 knives just alike and temper one softer and one harder and see the difference. thanks everyone for the info, Doug Jn. 3:16

    knife hardness

    What is the good of having a way to check hardness if you don't know about how hard you want blades? Thanks, Doug
