John and Jack,

I've seen one of those blades up close and they are pretty simple. Looked to me like a maybe 1/2" wide narrow kerf bandsaw blade that was heated at the center and bent on a long diagonal around the sharp edge of an anvil. The transition through the 90 degree bend was over the length of this diagonal which was around 4" long. Anyone with a decent torch and sharp edged anvil (and skill) would be able to make one of these. It wasn't rocket science.

I've never tried making one, but then again, I have no anvil. If I did, I would have tried...

David W., are you up for making these as well as chisels?...

John
