    Here is a modified Randall Made Tailors knife. I did the scales/liners/hilt and pins.

    I drill all my holes first, including butt end scale jimping.
    Then I shape including the holes converting them to halves and sand to 220.

    What are all the extra holes for? What do you mean by converting them to halves? haven't worked on a knife like this yet...just curious.
    Thanks

    Some really nice work in this thread. Mine is pretty modest, but it a user. It's my daily carry along with my Sebenza (might have to try that Oxy soak with that one).

    Hmm, I guess this would be a mod of sorts.
    This WAS a rusty Nicholson file.
    Now it's a knife.

    This was one of my first attempts at knife making, and my first attempt and annealing steel.
    It's ok, it's a knife for hard use tasks and general around the house crap.
    I affectionately call it the Bastard Blade, cause it was made from a bastard file.
    It rusts and can't take a razor edge, but it works for me!

    I guess you could take it to a razor edge but then you'd have to take away more material to make it like a knife, not a scandi chisel ;)

    Yeah, but I wanna keep it at the thickness it's at. It has a decent working edge, and considering it is a beater knife, a razor edge wouldn't last long.

    I think I leave the clip like this, purple fading into gold, 90V anodizing.
