    recently made a nice file knife for great guy over in GA. turns out he works at Liberty Cans and he sent me some nice pics. also one that made me laugh. i tried to tell him that rascal was sharp. these things happen.

    Gorgeous knife, I love the way you left the abrasive portion of the file in tact near the handle.

    That is a beautiful knife. Do you make these as a hobby, or a business?

    I’ve noticed that your knives are always aesthetically pleasing. Not just the knives but the handles and the sheaths too - the whole enchilada.

    got a new file knife cooking in the shop right now. this a german file with very aggressive file lines. it should be a very striking piece.

    That’s a great looking knife. The slim chance design looks like it would make a nice small game and deer dressing knife. Do you have a website with pricing and order info?

    thanks, our website is basically just a gallery right now. nobody ever uses it these days. most all my business is IG, Facebook and the like. just drop me a DM and i can tell you all about any model we make.

    thanks, i am working on a tiny one right now. maybe 6.0" overall. this one may not get handle scales, just skeletonized handle on it.
