Make a chef knife

I did a little research and ice skate blades are sometimes made from stainless steel and sometimes from high carbon steel. If those blades are high carbon steel and not stainless I might be interested because it is a challenge I have not tried before and I like the idea. If they are stainless steel I will have to pass because I do not have the proper Heat Treating capabilities for stainless. Unless they are marked somehow you may not be able to tell what they are made of.
I would have to pass then I have no experience with Stainless. Its a shame though I think it is a cool project I would have given it a shot.
