Made this knife at home for my p.w. To keep it in the truck with some of my tools...5160 steel I hope..I heat treated as so...she holds an edge so far after chopping that block of hard wood and some cardboard

Did you make that out of a section of truck leaf spring? That's just about the manliest thing I've ever seen. Where's Tim Allen when you need him? Seriously nice work man!

THAT is wayyyyy cool !!! :rockon: I am a HUGE knife guy. 5160 ROCKS for a knife blade. It is a steel that can cut other steels, literally !!!

Not 5160 but they used to have a video of 5160 doing the exact same thing.

thanks guys...twin i watched most of Miller bros videos they make some excellent blades..i cut bunch blanks from a leaf spring from a n.y.c garbage truck..was at the dump at their mechanics shop took apart the leafs from a complete pack they didnt need.. heat treat is important im still learning ...2wagons i took apart a treadmill and took the motor so i can make a 2x72 belt grinder...angle grinder a files take too much time...and bevels dont come out perfect..

These 2 Ontario's I have are made from 5160.

After batoning these through multiple logs with knots, they still easily shaved hair.

You makin' that for Paul Bunion ??? :lol:

I have an Ontario knife made by Justin Gingrich, It is a Ranger Signature Series, made from 3/8" S7 tool steel. It is my most expensive knife to date @ $150.00, quite a few years ago. Don't let anyone tell you that thick knives can't be shaving sharp either. That one i have literally can curl a single piece of hair.

BEAUTIFUL work.

:idea: You need to make a batch of choppers & etch the "POWER WAGON" logo on it & to get around the "copyright" bullshit, just etch the year of the PW of the people who buy them from you; example: 2008 Power Wagon, for mine. Just a thought, you do great work.
