    Default Making a fillet knife from a two man saw blade

    Those old two man saws were made with some really fantastic steel, and you can pick them up fairly cheap in most areas. Especially the busted up ones. I found one on our property several years ago and decided to make a couple knives out of it. Nothing special, but I've never seen a video on how to make a fillet knife. As you know, a fillet knife has to flex, it has to be fairly thin, and must have a very fine edge. All these things the old saw blade steel is great at! So here's my un-coordinated attempt at showing how I made a fairly decent fillet knife. It is a three part series.

    Looks good Wiggy!
    I made a many knife from cross cut saw blades, they always sold quickly.
    When all else fails, read the directions, and beware the Chihuahuacabra!

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?
