I have been making knives out of files, the grind in way. now since i have no way to heat treat the knife is always too soft. Also the edge is wavy. Are there ways to stop that from happening? Also should i get a different type of steel like 01 toolsteel, or 440 stainless? And should i stop using my benchgrinder, and save up for something made just for knifemaking?
Also What should i use forheat treating?

Thank you for any help
