    I'd assume that saw blade would be made of decent steel capable of holding an edge

    I thought he meant he dipped it three times to get it cold, not heated and cooled three times?

    Most older saw blades are good steel, think Svords, but the ability to hold an edge, as opposed to take an edge, is down to the heat treatment.

    Yeah as said if it's an older blade then it may be, the issue is that you don't know what steel It is and hence how to best go about your heat treat.

    For a cheapish knife ($130??)the eka swing goes well. I sharpen it on a wetstone when its getting a bit dull. Will smoke through three deer boning out without a touch up at all

    Antiqued hunter. Simple classic style belt knife. I fucked up the pin placement as my wood stock for the scales was shorter than I anticipated, but it still turned out OK. Lesson learned; measure that shit before you drill the holes.
    Nailed the geometry on this one 10 thou behind the edge, silly sharp.

    Very nice!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
