    I had a need to decompress a little tonight. So I took some scrap that was left over from another project.

    This is a chunk of a Nicholson (USA) mill file. I see some people people cut this off and discard (irksome)...

    A little forge and hammer and have this.....

    I don't now how long it'll take to finish as I'm back logged at the moment. I'll have to ti post as I go.

    Thanks for looking!

    Awesome friend!

    People throw those away? Say it isnt so... Not in my forge either! But then, I eat the baked potato skins too...

    Nice blade! I love that shape. And those short round tangs are so easy to put on a handle.

    Forging is a great stress relief...

    You didn’t know that potatoes are poisonous? Hmmm... maybe that was last year’s rumor. :33:

    The plant is poisonous. Not the tuber. I too eat the skins. Rubbed with bacon grease, spinkled with garlic salt and parmesan......

    If you don't remove the "eyes", you'll be stuck with a burning alkaloid taste that lasts for a while.
