Hi blacksmiths, I'm making knives to start off with but I'm not sure what shape for a file I need. The file is going to be used to make a bevel with either a scandi or convex grind. I have access to pretty much all shapes. - David
Hey, sorry about the no pictures. I just started a rr spike hawk... this is when my thread gets filled with people telling that it won't make an effective blade, right? Look I've heard it all and I know that you mean well but please just stick to the topic. To be honest I agree but I wanted to get a feel for tomahawks, so flattened the blade, and drifted the hole and it came out all right but a bunch of metal was rough and sticking out in the middle. since it's in the eye I can't grind it so I was wondering if a file then sanding would do the trick. If so where could I find a good file for the job and what kind of sand paper. Sorry if I'm acting unkind, and please I am open to all critique that doesn't involve the materials used for the hawk. Thank you for all comments and advice. ^_^
