Sorry for the delay. I did not heat treat it. Reason being, and I'm sure there are many different opinions, that when I ran the edge of a file over the steel it skated across. I was also careful not to overheat the steel when I cut out the shape.
It takes and holds an edge well. I just made the bottom one in the photo out of the same saw blade.
But I am in the process of getting a propane forge and study up on metallurgy
Added second picture with the leather sheath I made for the smaller knife.
