What kind of steel did you use for the 2 hander? Fullers would look good; I haven't tried any myself yet. My grinder is down for a run capacitor atm; I just ordered one, so hope i get it by a few days after the end of next week. Slim pickings for tech stuff here.

It's OCS  (old chevy spring) since it's an early 70's blazer spring, it should be 5160... I'm gonna build a spring fullering die to forge in the fullers using my little press... it should add a fuller on either side of the central ridge and make the blade wider

Oh goody!  You can forge elbow adze blades and D adze blades from old spring which are so valuable here in the Pacific Northwest for wood carving.

I've been saving old files for some bladesmith to play with some day.
Recently, I was told that many modern files are "case hardened" and crap for blades.
How would I know that?  
With any ambition, I can easily ruin half a dozen Oregon chain saw files in a day.
