Then I drilled the holes.

I cleaned up the blade again and added the bevel.

At this point you can either put a handle on the knife or heat threat it to get the knife even harder than it already is. If the steel is already good and hard, I may leave it alone. On some knives I will heat treat.

I like to use exotic woods or antler for the handles. This wood is called bloodwood.

A couple other saw balde knives. All from 10 inch table saw blades that aer .080 thick.

With an Ipe handle

With an antler and wlanut handle

With a Cocobolo handle

For bigger knives, I use bigger saw blades like concrete cutting saw blades that are 2 feet in Dia. and an 1/8" thick.
