have been thinking about making myself a knife. was thinking of buying a blade and making the handle but a friend the other day said that old files were made from very good steel and with work make good blades. my brother suggested using old chisels as files can be brittle and snap but the older chisels are softer but keep a really good edge. i know i can buy knife blades but fancy making one from scratch or as near scratch as i can.
any thoughts please
