I took a metal cutting saw blade and turned it into a 5" blade.

After sharpening, I was able to shave with it.

I think it will hold the edge for a long time, because I am not going to cut metal with it.

Acutally, because the blade is made of bi-metal. The body is made of steel which is stiff but flexible and the edge is steel tempered to be extremely hard to hold an sharp edge.

I was playing with it yesterday. I was able to slice pork chop paper thin accross the grain.

If sawblade knives were good, you'd see a lot more of them.   They're certainly inexpensive enough to make.  FWIW, very few cuts of pork chops have a grain. 

But do enjoy your knife.
