    couple of knives...one actually for me!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I found a few nicholson files in my grandfathers garage after he died. I forged them into a billet of damascus and made a couple of knives... one I kept and one I gave to my brother. This one is mine.



    I also made a san mai dagger that I think I will be taking to the Ohio show with me in October. Time to start planning ahead.

    Both great looking knives!

    I sure would be tickled pink to get a knife made out of my grandpa's files. He had a ton of them, and back then, I had no concept of what could be done with them. If I had, I would have gotten buckets full out of his shop.

    I bet he is looking down, and is pleased at the man you are, and the things you can do with your hands!
