I actually recently bought two lawnmower blades at a garage sale a couple months back with the intent of doing the same thing. The hardest part about using lawnmower blades for a knife is getting them to fit into the foundry!

Turned out great. A simple outline of steps would be a great addition to the text. Any estimate on how long this took to do? I may give this a try if I run across a mower blade or something similar.
