Moreover, do lawn mower blades make good knives?
You've mostly got the answer by now, but just to put it all together: lawnmower blades are not made of high-carbon steel, but medium-carbon steel at best. So from a lawnmower blade you can make a knife that will act like a lawnmower blade- it will bend instead of breaking and smoosh instead of chipping.
What Scrap metal is good for knife making?
- Tool steels are a very popular choice for making knives.
- Carbon steel grades with high amounts of carbon are desirable for knife making because they will give the blade the hardness and strength needed to hold up against impact and wear.
- Stainless steel is another type of knife-making metal.
