made from an old farriers rasp
satin finish
file marks left on the spine
gator skin texture worked into the scales

Nicely executed! Have you put a price on it? Will you build a sheath for it?

Do you anneal the rasp before grinding or grind them as they are and then temper them back?

i used to anneal them, work them and reheat treat,,, did some testing comparing my results compared with simply drawing a temper
,, and i did not find enough significant difference in edge retention to warrant the full spa treatment which resulted in a few warped blades
on occasion. i have my favorite brands that i usually work with and have made a few hundred with the rasps,, i love the finished product
but like i said,, either annealed or drawn temper, either way eats grinding belts. of course with the drawn temper route i have to use
specialized bits,, but like most things knife,, there is no perfect this or that,, it's all a compromise between things.
