    <span class="postbody"><br>Hallo Thorsten,<br>danke für den Link.<br>Aber für mich wäre gerade das herstellen der Klinge das Besondere.Ich mußte, nein falsch durfte in meiner Ausbildung noch schmieden lernen. Hat total spaß gemacht.<br>Einen Rohling mit Griff versehen und die Klinge abziehen wäre kein Problem.</span>

    Soooo...<br>i decided to get me a bar of cheap construction steal first, because i decided to learn more of the grinding and hardening process, before i wasre more expensive steel. this is what ive done so far:<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=61&u=17689246" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/68/92/46/imag1318.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>i decided to give it a simple and effective design<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=62&u=17689246" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/68/92/46/imag1319.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=63&u=17689246" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/68/92/46/imag1320.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>just sharpen it would have been to easy, so i gave it a hollow grind, reduces to weight also, and it was pretty heavy before<br><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=64&u=17689246" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/68/92/46/imag1410.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>after some sanding, still needs a lot<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=65&u=17689246" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/68/92/46/imag1411.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><br>thats it so far, if all scratches are gone ill try to harden it.<br><br>

    that's really cool! it's always good to learn new skills.<br><br>i always found a lot of knifes for a reasonable price that are exactly my taste. some for "one for all" usage and some for special usage (different sizes, different grinds,...). so i never had to make one by myself. but i love to sharpen/repair/improve/convert knifes.<br><br>btw, many people bought a cheap hammer or file and forged knifes out of it. don't know if you can harden this construction steal enough to hold the edge for long.

    Hi Tysonspapa,<br>I think the normal ST 30 steel issen`t able to harden.<br>Think you need a carbon steel, like from an old file or plate spring.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>but it's easy and cheaper to practise with it. how do you know it's st30? if it's another he still could try to ice temper it to make it a bit harder than the pure iron knifes back in the old ages.</span>

    He wrote "cheap construction steel" (also Baustahl).<br><br>Think he will not be happy with a useless unhardened knife.<br><br>I made some knifes, and I always use blades from plate springs or lawnmowers.<br><br>You can harden this steels and you have a knife that stays sharp.

    yer actually its not hard enough to sharpen it, gone try to harden it anyway. some sorts of construction steel got a small carbon amount, so it could work. if not, i have a big file laying around :)

    And I got some white paper steel here waiting to be a middle layer of a knife.<br><br>Could work if you cut a groove and put a carbon steel inside like on the japanese knifes.<br><br>Her is one I made from a lawnmover blade.<br><br>The sheat was more work than the knife <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_evil.gif" alt="Evil or Very Mad" longdesc="12"><br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13376088zj.jpg" border="0" alt="">
