    [​IMG] . This was my first attempt at doing some file work. The knife itself is a Damascus blank I bought a couple years ago before I ever attempted actually making a knife myself, and I bought just to put handle on. The handle was from a broken laminate rifle stock and I put brass spacers in and used jb quikweld so the filed out material would be filled in black. My wife loved it so much that it ended up belonging to her. She doesn't hunt but likes fishing so it ended up in her tackle box.

    Nice. I love doing the vines on spines. That sounds like a Dr. Seuss book...

    I love to file vines on spines,
    I love to file them anytime,
    From front to back,
    And side to side,
    my love of vines
    I cannot hide.

    Nice job on the vines. It is amazing how a little file work can amp up a blade.

    Thanks guys. I actually enjoy doing the file work more than any other part of the knife making.

    Looking good! The brass really makes a strong contrast to the voids.
