Go to the local metal scrap yard. Theyve got all sorts of thick stock metals and if they're cool theyll sell you some. Harbor freight also has files for probably around what it would cost top ship them. Dont you want the hardest metal you can get for a knife? of is that all done through tempering after the knife is formed?

Once I have seen some rusty files (as well as other tools) on a flue market. I thought "Who on Earth wood buy it"...

Ebay? Thrift stores?

try local craigslist, or freecycle.

Shipping can get pricey.
