. 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.
