I do this all the time just with a hacksaw. For the tightest configurations I drill a few holes first.Hi Cush, I drill the holes on the tang side near the blade and make one cut between the tangs with an angle grinder and a quality 1 mm cutoff disk. To make the cut precise I clamp a piece of wood or micarta as a guide. With the guide you will get the nice cut, it is important to "cut in“ aggressively and with speed or the wheel will try to dance on the surface of the tang.
