That's what I'm calling them anyway. Should be a good size to strap onto the back pack and use around the campsite or general hiking when the need arises. I've had a saw mill head saw for quite a while and decided to cut a few blades out to take a break and do something different. These will not be refined but should be finished enough for future tasks at hand. I did cut a portion of the saw blade and heat treated prior to making the machetes, the sample t hardened quite nicely with fine grain structure. The blades have been HT'd and tempered. I'm not planning on doing any or much sanding and will leave the finish as is except for the handle area where I'll sand it to bright metal to get good epoxy adhesion. Here are a few pictures. I should be getting the handles epoxied on this week. I'm thinking two with wood and two with micarta handles.
