thanks, I was really happy with the way that turned out. This one is on it's way to an elk hunt in Utah
this is from a file. Most old files made in the USA are 1095 tool steel and make excellent knives. I anneal these, work them and reharden them to RHC59-60. I etch them in ferric chloride to give it an old patina look.
Thanks, here's a few more I just finished

funny thing is, some people like the green and some hate it. I thought this one looked kind of camo
all my knives are annealed, worked and re-hardened then tempered.
