Made a skinner with Ironwood scales and star pin for a hunting buddy and started on a 12" pig sticker w/ 7" blade. Slanted guard and Cocobolo scales.
These big Heller rasps make for some really sharp blades that hold an edge very well.
Buddy is left handed so the sheath is made to carry vertical or horizontal.

Slapped another handle on the hog fighter and a hidden tang skinner. I think I'm done knife making for today
These hoof rasp knives ain't the greatest on looks but they sure do come in handy as a work knife and get scary sharp and hold an edge.
As long as you keep them cool while grinding they will retain hardness and then an hour or so bake in the oven at 350 deg. they sharpen real good if you have the proper hones. Heller rasps and Bellota rasps seem to be the best metal once you grind the file teeth off as they are hardened all the way thru. Case hardened rasps are worthless.
