    Utility with Filework.

    Thank you kindly Sir! After ten years of using bevel filing jigs I feel I'm finally getting close to the finish I seek. The filework just takes a bit of practise but it is always risky.

    Thanks for your kind words guys. Very much appreciated. The jig has been developing over the years to what you see now. As I try to improve the quality of my knives the jig developed to overcome the problems I encountered. I'm pretty happy with it's performance so far.

    Fishing Companion

    Thank you. I'm a life-long fisherman. I've made several rigs over the years. I like the way they hang around the back out of the way and don't pull my trousers down.This rig gives me options to take only the tools I think I will need.

    Thank you! I'm sure any jig will do a decent job of the bevels.

    Carbon fiber and jade ghost

    I've used jade G10 a couple of times myself and it does look better with black liners. Gives the jade a deeper lustre. White liners make it look more like plastic. I'm re-handling an Estwing axe at present with jade G10 and black rubber spacers. I hope it turns out half as nice as the handle on...

    Bevel Filing Jig

    I modified a couple of terminal clamps to attach the files. Solid brass. There is an M8 socket head bolt running the length of the handle as well.
