People who put kitchen knives in the dishwasher do not deserve such nice things.  Smirk

I looked around a bit for stainless spring steel, but didn't find any that I liked (or what I was willing to pay). These knives were made of 0.042" 1095 blue tempered steel. That said, there are many high quality chef's knives that are made from carbon steel. I have several myself. As long as they are dried right away after washing and occasionally wiped with oil, there are no issues with rusting.

Just wondering. I don't get them anymore because I have plenty but one can pick up hand saws at an auction usually to go for 5 for a dollar and it is had for them to get a dollar. What is wrong with just using old saw plate ? It can always be cleaned up.

And for the record the 1095 is the AISI  ( American Iron and Steel Institute ) and it is plane carbon steel with no allowing elements and it has ( decimal point ) .95 percent carbon and anything .60 and over is considered full hardening tool steel.  In generalities 0-30 non hardenable. 30-60 simi  hardenable.  This is a general statement that might be made the opening day of a metals class.

So most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 1045 and 1095 if making a knife.

Tom, folks seem to like clean and shiny tools in their kitchen. The spring steel comes in coils in various widths and thicknesses. I bought 0.042" x 1 3/4" steel in a 25 foot roll and cut the blades to length. Quick and easy!

The steel in vintage saws is closest to 1070. While 1070 tempered steel is available from a few sources, 1095 is readily available and reasonably priced.

They really look nice.

Just a question tho.  Just how does it cut with the teeth squared off??

Also if you would like some nice figured walnut I would love to send you some for free.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I think the squared off look is an optical illusion...I saw it that way at first as well...

I was trying to figure out what the heck you guys were talking about. Then I looked at the picture again. The camera angle does make the tip of the tooth look blunt.

The serrations and the flats are actually both filed at about 45 degrees.
