    thanks again, i dont have a way to take good pictures right now but i love the thing, it was a bear to sharpen, my NOS file would barely cut on it, but im glad i saved this handle. couldnt find any markings though.

    It is a very hard piece of steel so it will serve you well, the bits aren't badly worn either so lots of life left.
    Glad you like it!

    The handle looks like it slips right into the eye without too much excess - good stuff.

    Give aways are fun. I am feeling it.

    it does cut very nice, i dont have my angle grinder so it has a fairly thick edge. the thing doesnt care what geometry it has

    Grab a file and thin it down...no grinder needed. Looks good!

    Grab a Norton Utility File, in this case. I'm about to experiment with a coarse scythe stone, should work as well.
