So i wanted to make a knife for my mom to use in the garden. I opted for a tanto style just for fun. I forged it out of a coil spring, forged in bevels. Then i drawfiled it, making the nice partially unfinished knife here. Picture 1 and 2 Then i made this filing jig. Then i filed one side (sort of) to a flatish bevel (it came out of the drawfiling slightly convex) picture 3 Then, using the same bevel angle on the other side, i did a more thorough job. To my dismay, 1/4" deep of my edge had rolled over and was useless, leaving the blade shape below. I will have to start again...
