Now the hard work begins

Using the filing technique in the tutorial mentioned in a previous post I began the tedious process of filing a bevel on my drop point knife. This requires plenty of patience and a lot of elbow grease. I needed to be very precise with the filing and ensured I left a 1mm thick edge on the knife to ensure the blade did not warp during heat treatment. Once I was happy with the bevel I gave everything a sand with 120 grit to remove the deep scratches from the file. I thought the filing was tedious but it has nothing on hand sanding.
