just finished this unique file knife today. this is from a thick Nicholson file i had on hand. deep hollow grind blade with a nice copper hamon line. just a fun project to work on.

it is 10.0" overall with a 5.0" blade. the file is 3/8" thick, that is why i left it without any handle scales. it is a pretty thick boy as it is.

As the proud new owner of this work of art, as good of a photographer dozer is, it doesn't quite do justice to the copper hamon. It's a beautiful line and really sets off the blade.

I have always wanted one of his Nicholson file knives and this it.

Quality craftsmanship

the compound grind file is a big Nicholson and the giant bowie is a really old rasp that is a commission build. it is quite a handful, to be sure.

Sorry dozer, but I laughed out loud at that sticker. I have one on my belt grinder! Big Grin
