There's a new glassblowing supply store opening in the UK called The Glass Toolbox; you can find them if you google. I'd recommend you see what commercially made jacks they carry and get a pair. The issue of jack blade material has been worked out (with varying degrees of success) and I bet any decent commercially-made jacks (Maruko, Jasen Johnsen, Carlo Dona, Jim Moore, Cutting Edge) are going to be better than what you make. That is unless you enjoy spending more time metalworking and less time glassblowing. Work hot and they won't wear much at all.
