File knives

Well, rasps actually. These two were made for my horse shoer, who saves all his worn out rasps for me.

Rasps are a little tricky to make knives out of  sometimes. The steel they use seems to vary a little bit, some will be good high carbon steel, and some will be case hardened, and not suitable for a knife. and it is hard to tell the difference sometimes until you have already done a lot of work. I have kinda figured it out by brands, but even then you can get a dud.
These turned out good, and will serve him well for a long time.
