After reading blazinworm's file knife thread I decided to get back to my own file knife. I started it last winter and for whatever reason it got put on the bench and left. Here are some progress picture from the past year, File after I annealed it in my charcoal grill. Here is my home made Micarta scales made from some old khaki shorts. Now I just have to harden the steel, and put the final edge back on it and attach the micarta scales.
