Just now, in under ten minutes I raked a short Sawzall blade spine through an electric knife sharpener, then down some crock sticks, and ended up with a sawzall blade that will shave, as well as cut off limbs. Looks kind of like a Mora knife with a nice saw down one side, except is says "Milwaukee" on it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> This was a 6 inch, 10 tpi, blade. This blade cuts on the pull stroke. Seems stiff enough and fits in a ballistic nylon sheath I already had laying around. Tang bolts into a wood file handle. Total build time was about 15 min. and cost was about $3. This has some promise!
