Step 7: Cut it off...

Picture of Cut it off...
Time to cut the extra metal off. You could let the metal cool, then use a hacksaw or angle grinder, but I'm going to hot cut it. Remember when I used the edge of the anvil to 'dent' the knife? Well, if you keep going, you can cut all the way threw that way.

I'm going to use a piece of flat, sharped spring held in the vice. Line up where the cut will be and hit it with a hammer-don't go all the way threw! That will screw up the hammer face. Go part way threw, rotate and go part way threw again. Then, grab the knife with the tongs and bend or twist until it breaks off.
