fighting knife with file work.

Just got finished with this blade. Now I have to try to drill and make some wood handles tomorrow morning. I like knifes with file marks so here is the idea I had brought to life. This took most of the day. Any feed back is appreciated. thanks

Pretty cool, griff. Did you make the blank as well, or buy it?

Looks pretty good Griffin. What kind of wood you gonna go for for the handles?

I'm thinking a nice grainy dried oak cut really thin and oiled up dark.

Something like this center wood.

That is a nice job! I have made two knives from saw blades and you cant beat the way they will hold an edge. Here are two that I have made the one on top is from a file. The handle is not done yet. And the bottom is from a saw blade

Well, you answered my next question...how'd you get that "perfect" curve? :D

Looks like a "nessmuk"

Cool!

Well the blade I used was carbide tipped so I had to cut the curve off then I reshaped the curve back in.
