Checkering file work

Recommended Posts

I knew it was gonna be a slow day at work today, so I brought some scales and a checkering file. Never used one before, thought Id give it a try. 


Handles are for a set of 4 pattern welded fishing knives going to my Wife’s dad and 3 brothers. Micarta, sanded up to ~ 300 grit (A45 micron). 


Since they are for wet-work, you want some grip. 


I tried going in 2 directions on a test piece, I’m not talented (read patient) enough... yet... so single direction it is! Lol


I will assemble then sharpen tonight I hope.
