    Nice Dex!

    The real question is, what are you going to do with the remainder?

    Thanks man.
    And you gonna ruin the suprise! haha.
    Been grinding a little on the discarded piece already. Plenty of metal to make something cool i think. If I get a chance later tonight, I'll post a pic of the original scrap section.

    I made a neat little kiridashi with what was left over on mine.

    Hey Vik! Yea, I'm still kicking. haha

    And that is an idea I have-not thought of yet. May be a possibility. I was gonna cut it, but now I will ponder your idea. I do like that option as well. Thanks!

    That's what I was gonna do too. How did yours come out? Any pics?

    And here is a pic of the scrap before I started shaping it.

    Oooh, or a claw! Or a mini pole-arm!
    (kiridashi is clearly a winning idea. I'd biru that sucker in a second. Or... nevermind, drilling hardened steel is no fun.)

    exactly - hence the suggestion of heat and beat. ;)

    OTOH, that would make an awesome mouse-killer axe head -- drill a stick and hammer the tang through it then file to a chisel point.

    The piece is is far too thick for this, but if you leave that top curve alone and reshape what is left, I see a mini BK 21 emerging . . .
