Its all good I sanded all the teeth flat :-) although one of my work mates reckoned I should have left them on so you could still file and rasp with it ! Pretty dangerous idea I reckon !

Good looking knife. Farriers rasps make good knives. Only thing you need to watch for is the new rasps are mild steel with a case hardened surface. Once heated or the surface removed, you just have mild steel. I know that from experience. :roll:

The bowhunter becomes enamored with the flashy new equipment and he forgets that the very essence of bowhunting is primitive and atavistic.
