I haven't made a kiridashi in a while.
A little bit of O1 steel, cut off one end at an angle. Tapered one side so that it's not parallel.
A quick drill (using old transformer blocks as drill blocks)
Then round the end - used the drill bit so that the curve matched the position of the hole, pivoting it round.
and then a bit of thinning and rounding in the middle.
It still needs the bevel putting on, heat treating and possibly a bit more rounding of the handle but a satisfying bit of work.
