It's for a KITH on a knife forum - KITH stands for Knife In The Hat - it's basically a make and swap between different knife makers. It's a good way of trying something new and is a bit of fun!
I have had an old Nicholson file knocking around for a while and I've decided to make mine out of that.
I didn't like how the handle shaped round so you'll see the outline different in the next pictures.I cut off the excess file. This was done nice and slowly with the angle grinder and frequently dipped in water so as to preserve the heat treatment.
I started the tapering then realised that it would be easier to drill some holes while the sides were still parallel!
I'll post up here when the give away is ready but I would suggest keeping an eye on my facebook page too just in case.
