A bit of file work.

Recommended Posts

I have been working on another Stickleback very similar to the black honey comb one I did before I say similar it very close except for a re shaped finger guard and file work along the spine, I'm not convinced, I think I should have died the resin black to match in with the handle, but the customer is always right, even though this time I disagree as he wanted blue. Hey ho, is what it is. Its a very basic file work design, its supposed to be an "S" but I don't think I've done it right,

Still have to do the Lanyard tube and lanyard, cast the lanyard bead and etch the blade, But so far I'm quite pleased with it, Just hope the customer is happy, I hope he hasn't been googling file work and knows what an "S" pattern is supposed to look like.

It is blue resin, just dosn't show up to good camera.

There is little doubt if you keep practising you'll get pretty good at this knife making thingy .....

NO, joking apart , that is a most beautifull knife, a piece of artwork in fact. I love seeing file work on the backs of knives it just adds a bit of something extra. Super quality piece of cutlery.

Before heat treat, I never get the tang that hot anyway easier on the belts if you need a rethink.
