i know its not woodworking” but it does have wood on it. and ive seen others post knives on here. so i thought i would. i made this knife for my uncle who recently retired from the ARMY RANGERS after a quit lengthy military career. i made it out of a 50cent file from a flee market. has a brass guard. and then layers of tigerwood and leather for the handle. and a brass pummel

Since it’s made with tigerwood, it qualifies as a wood working project in my book, and I like it.

I like it. Have you made knifes from files before? If so does it hold its edge?

yeah ive made a handful. the files hold and edge pretty good. though they tend to be a little bit brittle. so i like to heat the blade up with a propane torch to toughen it up a bit.

Did you acid etch the “Ranger” on the blade?
