Nice work, much better than mine.  The file knife shown is cold ground, I did it to test my skill at building the handle and guard for the most part.  I don't have a forge nor room for one.   The Balance of the knife is excellent, you can literally swing it by holding it only with a couple fingers resting against the guard and using a chopping motion.
