Well done Richard. ::nod::
I like that you left some of the file groves on the blade, it brings out the visual effect of the handle.
It's always important to know what you don't know.

Great job!

I found a quite old (thus decent steel) dull Black Diamond I had in the bottom of one of my tool cabinets (I think I found it on an old, abandoned farm that adjoins ours, and that we leased for a few years; and since the file was dull, I just chucked it into a drawer). It's decently wide and about 18" long, so I should be able to get a decent blade out of it.
