I got a start on this blade today, the leaf springs are from my 63 Ford f-100 that I lowered. I'm going to leave it alone until I get my grinder built but here it is so far. A few questions though.. I've noticed that some builders will heat treat at this stage (or maybe after first grind or so) , then finish grinding after HT dipping in water frequently. Thoughts on that? Also, after forging the blade I noticed an evvvver so slight curve to it, right where the blade and handle meet. Do I need to reheat in the forge and tap it out, or do it now, or.. ? It's minor but I'd like it straight. And does the blade look more scaley than it should? I really am just kind of winging this until I get it right. Thanks in advance!
