    "You want a What kind of knife?"

    A commissioned knife I didn't want to make, but as ugly as it is, it works and works well. !2" blade filet knife from a vintage Disston hand saw blade. I don't enjoy stock removal blades and avoid them if possible. I enjoy the hammer and anvil, but this thing surprised me.

    Edit: Blade is .035" thick, handle is bubinga with glued and peened brass pins. Extra scales are cut from DOT signs!

    Very nice. I like your version of the Lansky sharpener!

    I like the everything about that knife.
    It would have a permanent spot in my kit.
    I could break down a whole salmon in no time with that.
    I've a couple knives that I thought might be from old saw blades. Nothing that good looking. Great working arc on that blade.

    Good looking filet knife. I'm sure the commissioner will be pleased with how it came out. I've done both stock removal and forged blades, forged is definitely more of a challenge for me. Stock removal is fine but I enjoy the challenge of forging a blade.

    I like that knife, for certain tasks..............mainly Filleting.

    The blade is a bit thin, and too long for (my tastes) doing other tasks, but that's one fine looking Fillet Knife.........And I bet it will produce a nice long fillet cut on a Stripper or Blue.........

    I like your work, particularly, the sweep to the blade and the handle.............
