Got to love that file work! 2thumbs Here's a question for you guys that do-it-yourself... do you try a file work pattern out on a scrap piece of steel or do you go to work on the actual knife from the get go?
This is a picture of my 3rd knife, but I'm not sure if the filework can be clearly seen or not. I went with the simple, basic wave pattern. Didn't really take my time on it either so it's not exactly evenly spaced or filed. The filework on my 2nd knife is much better but I don't have a pic of it.
I'm surprised I never added Frank Niro's 'Double Lightning' to this thread. Liners and backspacers are fileworked and anodized. Wish I could take better pictures. :sad: Frank did an outstanding job on this one!
My trade mark is the scorpion tail razor . I filed twisted rope on the spine . If it wasnt for Duane Duchane video I cant imagin how ide do it . this straight razor is a full wedge made from aldo s 1084 and black horn scales with a bone wedge .
Thanks, Gary !!!! I'm now taking some pictures but haven't yet learned to post to a forum .
I'm still learning the file work. When I did the first ones it was because I was asked to. I told all who were interested I was going to stop any time. About then my wife told me "All folders leaving here are to have file work". I thought if she thinks it's okay well I just better continue. Frank
Here are a coupe straight razors I made sorry my focus if out one is twisted rope and one creeping vine I forgot I posted the one short memory . Josh is right duchane is one of the best I am glad to have the video or ide be lost half the time.
