    Rimu + Carbon Fiber + Hacksaw Blade = Machete/Seax

    Just a quick one, need to do some tree trimming around the house so knocked this up.

    Power hacksaw blade, turns out they are M2 HSS which means I cant heat treat it but its probably not a bad hardness/temper for a machete anyway. The blade was just ground with an angle grinder and the Rimu handles are glued on with epoxy and a couple of layers of carbon, hopefully this will stop them from splitting
