Finished up these 3 knives this week. 

 

This blade was from a rasp.  The handle is micarta with stainless hardware and blue liner

Another rasp blade with brass hardware, cocobola, and spacers

This blade was forged from 2 forge welded pieces of cable with 2 pieces of bandsaw blade seperating it.  The handle is ebony, malachite spacer, and stainless hardware

Very nice!  With the rasp knives do you anneal and then grind the primary bevels, in the process removing the teeth?

Yes.  I annealed them in vermiculite overnight then ground them down to remove the teeth and expose the 2 patterns.  The rest was stock removal.

Really nice. What kind of band saw blades? We haves two large HEM saws at work and I have a lot that I use for fabrication spacers.

Beautiful design, fit and finnish, but as a knife user I have never liked that kind of blad transition. As you sharpen the blade it becomes a projection that has to be grount down. I find this on chef knives all the time.

I looked in to what Lenox saw blades are made of. They wouldn't tell me exactly what is was but the teeth are high speed steel and the backing is spring steel. I asked if it was 1095 cause it hardened the same and the guy chuckled and said I was really close. Don't know if this helps anyone but I'm pretty sure it's 1095 or 1075.

Beautiful work.  I especially like the first knife.  I use one very similar to that when skinning game and absolutely love the blade shape.  Very impressive work.
