i have access to a lot of farrier's rasp/files probably 20 or so i'm not looking to sale them but would like a couple of very simple knives made.is this something that would be a fair deal for both parties? pm me if you are interested.i am in the frisco area
I hope that this doesn't come off wrong and I mean no disrespect but that's going to be hard deal to make with someone. Used rasp are fairly cheap as far as knife blade materials go and there is actually more time spent on them than there is making a knife from new quality blade steel. They have to be annealed first and then all of the rust removed before you can even think of turning them into a blade. That takes a while and is something you don't have to do with new clean steel regardless of the type steel you are using.
Used farriers rasp can be had at a price that ranges between $1 to $3 at trades days, estate sales and so forth.
