Just wondering, does anyone of you ever throw messed-up blades away? I'm just looking for a few knife-shaped pieces that I can have next to my handles so that people get a better idea about the size. I would want to grind the tang to a thin stick so I can stick any size wa handle on, it's just for scale really. Something like 240-270ish gyuto, maybe a petty and a slicer shape. Before I whittle something out of aluminum foil or thin sheet metal, I thought I'd ask... It would never be used as a knife or sold.
