    Sheep shear blades

    What do you think? Is it a good type of blade for a knife?

    I have seen propper blade shears that were sharp enough to cut a few wool fibers that were layed across the edge and blown on. So I think they can be sharp enough for sure but most of them are a fare bit softer than a good custom knife . No reason they couldn't be heat treated to a higher hardness though.

    I had seen a pic of one and there was no follow up for performance, so I figured there should be some other info about them.

    Sam, here's one I done a while back made from a Burgon & Ball from Sheffield England.. I've used it a bunch and it has held up well.
    Been waiting for the right antler to do the other side. It took a while to get used to the chisel grind. It is part of a set with a remodeled old hatchet.
