i have been seeing a lot of makers lately doing amazing work using just simple files. i did a little file work over the weekend. :evil: this was a 12" Nicholson mill bastard file on friday. a gave it a bit of a makeover.

I'm not a big choil kind of guy but I prefer some kind of profile transition between the scales and the blade so I can tell when I'm getting my grip toward the sharp end of the blade.
Realize this isn't a working (butchering) knife but, just askin': What is this for?

All from Nickolson files (I'm not the maker) retempered to 58 Rockwell...
