A fine tutorial. I have made a few cutting tools from circular saw blades. I always tried to get saw blades where the teeth were fashioned from the blade- not added on carbide teeth. That way you are guaranteed the saw blade is good tool steel.

DIY Carving Knifes from Hacksaw Blades + Custom Box
Brandon, you did a terrific job on those carving knives. The whole package with the storage box and the leather holding strap makes them very unique. The little curved tail on the handle keeps the knife from rolling off the table and you can't hold that knife except in the correct position for carving (unlike straight, round handles where you don't know where the cutting edge is without looking). As a carver for about 20 years, I believe you can make the knives carvers want. Keep going- refine everything, learn to do your own heat treating and you will have a valuable product! Look at "Drake Knives"- a friend of mine who started off making knives in his garage.
