I saw an article about making a knife from an old wood file. Has anyone tried that? Tips? I think I will try it, and I'll post some pictures along the way. Off to the pawn shop to find some old files...

Made a throwing knife out of an old German steel metal file then used an olive drab/brown blueing. Not real pretty but sharp as hell, double edge and with the blade being5 inches, it will surely do some damage

Looks like one of those old ww1 trench knives.
Your photo is a bit on the dark side(like Darth Vader) but looks good.
There are various posts on the knife thread relating to file knives, use the search.
