    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!

    thank you for all your troubles and wonderful work. I will make my next knife one out of a lawn mower blade. Your video has been a great help.

    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.

    I want to check it out but it doesn't work on the app
