Collaborative project with Wood By Wright to make an ulu knife.
Watch the rest of the build here: http://www.uvideoplay.com/video/_T1piTnZBN05WUjA.html http://www.uvideoplay.com/video/_LWRrR0FodVhuWVk.html
Decided to make the blade of this ulu without redoing any hardening on the sawblade, the steel from this kind of sawblades (without carbide tips) should be all hardened. The one I have used here it was all hardened indeed.
To make an usable knife this way the most important thing to keep in mind is to not overheat the steel where the cutting edge will be.
Of course grinding and drilling hard steel is much harder compared to annealed steel, but if you don't have any thermal treatment equipment or even just for the fun of it it's still a great way to make something that will perform well!
Thanks a lot for watching, I hope you liked the video!
