    Hello,

    I'd like to share a little blade with you all, one I like a lot. It's a dha-like object, forged titanium alloy 5Al 2Mo 4.5V 1Cr 0.7Fe, and part of the "Siberian Slashers" being made from Russian ti alloy.

    It's 24" oal, and weighs well under a pound, 1/8" thick at the grip with a gentle distal thickness taper. It's like a giant, tough, flexible hand-held razor blade! Should be nice for normal machete work.

    Watch the Mad Science Forge subforum to see what becomes of the Russian BT23 alloy sheet.

    A "masterpiece," he says. :p LOL! Thanks Dawkind.

    Thanks also, Lorien. This bushwhacker probably acts a lot like the one you have at the moment.

    I gotta make a couple more like this one, eventually.

    Yes sir, the damn things always take longer than expected to finish, but after the initial round of Siberian Slashers in the normal Mecha style, I'll make a few more dha-like objects like this one!
