Nickleson is a brand of file. It can be one of several different styles. A farrier’s rasp is a file used in shooing a horse. This steal is incredibly hard but brittle. These knives are only for cutting. Do not use them for any other purpose, such as prying. or screwing. They will hold an edge very well and will be a lot of work to sharpen.
Thank you! I appreciate the extra info and tips!
The ability to take ( sharpen ) and hold an edge and to be not too brittle all depends on how well the blades were heat treated. Watch out A Girl, you have now started on your way to collecting hand made knifes. I know several makers. It can get habit forming. Congrats.
Lol, yeah I feel a habit beginning to form.
