Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! 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.
