Cheap File Guide for Knife Making

Two straight brackets, two bolts, two nuts and you have a cheap file/grinding guide for grinding the racasso and choils areas of your can even use it to line up the scales.

It costs only a few bucks...........I know you can buy a better one for about $75, but I can make a heck of a lot of these for the price.

    Hello, sorry, but I'm not a knife maker (yet), but would you explain what the tool does, please.

    It is a guide some knife makers use when filing or grinding the bevel on the blade. It helps you ensure that the bevel ends parallel to each other on both sides of the blade.
