Making a Tang

John Crissman
>Hi everyone,
I have two nice pieces of HSS (1" wide x 3/8" thick x 11" long) that I want to make into a round and square end scrapers.

I have never done this so I was wondering if there was ratio of exposed tool/tang that I need to follow, or do I just wing it?

Thanks,
John
