I made these file knives for a long-time customer and friend from this forum. He brought me these four files last week and together we determined how to finish them. I’ll make the sheaths today; Thanks Mark for the opportunity to make some memories for your boys. Hollow ground, Marble Wood bolsters and stabilized spalted tamarind with black liners and file work on the spine.

Bob made these file knives for me. The files were from my grandfathers shop on his little farm.

Three of these were made for my oldest son, and 2 of my nephews. The 4th one is mine, and will then be passed down to my oldest grandson

I know it will be pretty special to have something made from a tool their great grandfather used in his own hands.

Bob did an amazing job on the knives and the sheaths and I will be very proud when I gift it to them.

Thank you Bob

Well done Sir

I enjoyed making for you brother, these were a fun build, and extra special considering the story behind them.
