'poet, looking to make some knives...and then see where it leads me.
Thanks. I am not an authority either, so I will be interested in what the experts have to say. I’m not sure if he is on this forum as well, but you might inquire of Two Feathers. He makes a lot of period-style knives and sheaths. If you can’t find him here, he is on www.muzzleloadingforum.com

Good luck!

Thanks, my father had gotten a 5' diameter sawmill blade never got to make blades from it. Now, I'll give it a go.

I suppose one question would be, what do you want to make?
Something like the short tanto Kabar I already have.
It has 5.25" blade & 9.375" overall. Which, in MY OPINION, about optimum for a knife that is big enough to do stuffs with but small enough to always be with you to do stuffs with. Versus all the foot long heavy bladed 'Bowie' knives that always end up in a box somewhere in the garage to rust away. Like the factory pix but with hickory grips.
