Ian Pratt Knife for Art Riser

I wanted it to look as if it had been dug up and cleaned a little (all the dirt and crud on the blade is new....well it's old dirt of course, I guess I mean it's not the same dirt you gave me with the file)  As I built it the whole idea changed somewhat to being a knife that was made using a file that had already been long discarded. At some point it somehow became part of an earlier "collection" and then ended up in the ground for a time, but not for a length of time spanning back anywhere near to the time of it's manufacture. Then of course, you found it.
