Big Belly File Knife

this is the last of some german files i got from my gramps. they are old as sin, but make awesome blades. this is my latest design. i wanted it to have a big belly and be very slim at the same time. it is about 7.75" overall with a sweeping hollow grind. i may make one for myself to butcher deer. i think the shape would work well for that kind of work.

here is the second B3 i have wrapped up. i made it a bit more robust, i guess you would say. a little more meat in the tang area and even more belly in the blade shape. it is an even 8" long. i am having a lot of fun with this blade shape.
