All finished up, if I remember a Nicholson file forged to shape. I did clay the spine but I decided to buff it out. My homemade denim mycarta

Nice blade, although I don't like that handle shape, but that's just me.

With all the irons in your fire, it's amazing you find time to get so many of these craft projects completed.
Congrats on another good looking blade. And the scales are good looking!
