Not all lawn mower blades are created equal. When looking at the blades there are a couple things to pay attention too: Where the blades are damaged and how thick the metal is, you want at least one good region to cut the knife blade from. Where the serial numbers are on the blades, I find these add a cool one of a kind look to each blade.

Lawn Mower blades good for Blade material? EDCForums

Jan 20, 2009  lawnmower blades are not made of high-carbon steel, but medium-carbon steel at best. So from a lawnmower blade you can make a knife that will act like a lawnmower blade- it will bend instead of breaking and smoosh instead of chipping. It won't hold an edge very long, but it will be well-nigh indestructible in the face of abuse.

Read This Before You Make a Knife - BLADE Magazine

Mar 07, 2018  There was a time when all blades were made by forging. Steel was expensive and even rare in those days. Stock removal wouldn’t have been feasible because it would have wasted enough material to make another knife or two. Two blades can often be forged from the same-sized piece of steel that would make only one full-tang stock-removal blade.

Choosing Your First Anvil for Blacksmithing - FeltMagnet

Jul 30, 2021  Choosing an "anvil like object" (ALO) is an inexpensive way to get started. An ALO is a much better choice than an "anvil shaped object" (ASO). A large round or square of 4140, mounted vertically, would make a fine anvil. Surround it with some 4x4s or sink it into a stump to hold it in place.

Metals for Making Knives - Metal Supermarkets

May 25, 2017  Austenitic grades such as 316 may occasionally be used for knife making, however, austenitic grades are generally not able to be hardened enough to ensure a lasting edge. Low carbon versions of austenitic stainless steel, such as 304L, should be avoided when making knives unless corrosion resistance is the main concern and blade life is secondary.
