Those are some sweet blades.  What is the treatment on the blades?

No treatment actually. The sawmill blade was old, rusty and pitted a bit. I had to clean off the surface rusty with a wire wheel then soak them in some vinegar for a few days to clean them up. Then once I heat treat them that patina naturally shows itself giving a great look in my opinion.

What is "hollow ground?"

Like the looks of those. 

Hollow grind — a knife blade which has been ground to create a characteristic concave, beveled cutting edge. This is characteristic of straight razors, used for shaving, and yields a very sharp but weak edge which requires stropping for maintenance. ... The Finnish puukko is an example of a Scandinavian ground knife.

That helps.  So you did that to both sides?  Like it says above is the edge going to be more fragile?

Yes...did you see the pics of both sides? And for normal use hollow ground knives are great....they are actually better slicers. It you want to baton wood or use a knife as a chopper I wouldn't use a hollow ground knife.

I couldn't agree more.  They turned out very cool looking.  Kinda rustic.
