this is another kwaiken design from a big Nicholson file. seems to be a lot of guys who dig the file designs. this one is 10" long with a right hand chisel grind up to a convex chisel tip. scales are brilliant blue dymondwood with steel pins. sleek piece.

I like it. I really like the scales too. Did you work it annealed?

oh yeah, way too much trouble to try and grind it when it isn't annealed. i usually just stick a file in the forge while i am working on something else. i let it get nice and toasty, then close up the forge and let it cool very slowly. in a few hours, it is ready to work with. this one took a great heat treat afterwards as well. i don't mess with any other files, but Nicholson. they seem to be consistent and take a good heat treat for me. seems there are a lot of guys who love file designs. especially in my area. i have a customer who wants a nice traditional skinner/hunter style made with a file. that should be fun.
