It depends what you want to make with it. A similar sized bar of O1 tool steel from Mcmaster Carr might cost double what you could buy a lawn mower blade for, but it will be all useable, with out all of the bends etc. The nice thing about working w/ tool steel is that you can do all of the shaping, drilling, etc. before you harden it. Where as if you have ever tried to drill a hole in reciprocating saw blade you know what I am talking about, impossible.
