Haven't read the entire thread yet,
But I am a full-time cutlery maker myself.
It's my "second job" besides my other self-employment (since the "economy" is so messed up).

I have a push-dagger I am basically mass-producing (it'd probably be illegal a lot of places , for the double edge)...It's made of 1095 grade steel.
I also have a short-sword design, that will be next, a cool knife based off it's tip, and a long-sword with different dimensions (for weight).
5160 grade is my favorite for those (it's a modern spring steel).

Sometime I'll post pics or a link ,OR once I have my own site to advertise on.
Thanks! 8)

You could always offer the push dagger with only a single edge sharpened, with large bevels it would be just as effetive :wink:

This is the same one as I posted a few months ago. Still not sure on the steel, but it is solid. Took me probably a weeks worth of time to grind it to that shape. I have been working on it for 6 months now on and off...

hmm, usually even the mildest-steel is solid :lol:

I believe you have used just basic scrap steel, i could sell you a piece of higher quality steel, PM me if you are interested

Nah, my mom would kill me if I got a bigger knife... This one is going to be used as a prop right now, its dull enough to where I can squeeze my hand around it and pull it and it won't even leave a mark. (that's also what she said hahaha.) After the show though its going to be sharpened.

seems like a very sturdy shieth that won't get cut up fast.
