KMD Posted February 1, 2021 Share Posted February 1, 2021 Howdy folks Pretty new here, I have been doing lots of reading and poking around here and it's a great forum. Now, I have an old chainsaw blade that was left here at the house I now own and I am wondering if it is usable blade steel. Yesterday I cut a small piece off and threw it in my forge and quenched it in veg oil and it hardened. I then snapped it and it was tough. Here are some pictures. The blade is 33 inches long and about 1/4 thick. The grain structure looks like it has mild steel on the outside, like a chainsaw san mia SO do you think I have do blade steel or do I have some scrap? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
