Great work pappy, those are some very clean looking blades!

A couple more finished and a neck knife in the works, handle all fitted and ready to heat treat and temper blade probably today. I love file knives, getting low on quality old files , guess i better get out and find some more.  ;)

Sharpest blade I've made was made from a industial type power hacksaw blade.
A bit thin and more flexible than you'd want for heavy duty work but sharp as a scalpel.

Stock removal method leaving the saw teeth on the back edge.
No annealing needed this way. Just don't let the grinder overheat the steel.

The blade I used, found cheap at a salvage store, was long enough for two knives. I still have half the blade. Gave the first knife to a friend, never got around to making the second knife.
