File This... Nicholson Files are Crap

As I've mention many time on here, I dabble with making knives and other metal objects and work on guns as a hobby. In these past time I use files. I have always used Nicholson files as this is what is readily available in most hardware stores and various tool outlets. Over the years I have notice that Nicholson file are no longer serviceable. They will not cut gun metal and they will not cut most knife steel. These steels will leave grooves in the file! One ting I have noticed is that Nicholson files are now made in Mexico. I have 10-15 worthless Nicholson files that will be made into knives when I get that segment of my life. It's a pity, in my younger days I could use a Nicholson for many years with proper care. Carding and chalking will go long way to preserving files. Now, you take one from the package and it will make a handful of passes then it's done. Pure crap! I a on the look out for a decent set of files. I have heard that Bahco  makes good files. I do have a few decent ones with blue plastic handles that say Supertainium on them. I got them from a welding supplier but even these are loosing their cutting ability. Does anyone have any suggestions? Leave them in the comment section or even email me. I would only suggest that a person by a Nicholson file if it is New Old Stock. Some that have been sitting on a hardware stores shelves for many years. Do not buy any new ones that say Made In Mexico.

I did find this guy. He has a lot of info an good files.

Plastic Skins

Well, I have started a new skill that one day I hope to turn into a new venture. Kydex forming, making knife sheaths and gun holster and tool carriers from thermoplastics. I have been piecing together the supplies and after making my sons Christmas present I had to coble together a Kydex press. I also had to order the foam for this press and there is none available in Kansas City, none that I have found so far anyway. I made the sheath for a knife I made from an Old Hickory brand butcher knife, I made it in the Kephart style and them modified that to my liking. Then I just knocked out the sheath like I had been doing it all my life. Then just for me and general practice I made a sheath for a Buck 120, which was a real bear and then a holster for a Gerber multi-tool and that was a pain in the ass too. I do not have these two item done yet as I need a couple of more things to finish. I need longer eyelets and a heat gun. And once again I am BROKE. I start back at Home Depot this coming Friday and I got a big ol' raise too for coming back. BUT, all they had was part time so.....

Any way the sheath for the Buck will be in the old style, meant to be carried thrust behind your belt with a finial holding it from sliding through. The finial is on a separate strap of Kydex that will wrap around the sheath body, hence the need for longer eyelets to go through 4 layers.

The holster for the Gerber only needs the belt clip formed and I need a heat gun for that. So until funds are flowing again this, sigh, is on hold, dammit.

The knife...

The sheath is made from .60 digital tiger stripe camo Kydex.

Here is the starting of the sheath for the Buck 120...I think it's gonna  be sexy with the black Kydex and a one inch strip of camo Kydex for the brass finial. More to come.

And finally the Gerber project...

This skill will come in handy for many things, especially when I get my blacksmithing shop going and then my bladesmithing shop in order.

More On Kalifornia

I regards to my FUCK KALIFORNIA post, here are the details as I feel free to give. My brother, whom I am very close too has had a wreck of a marriage for many years. He like many other people has been out of work for may years. He received a job offer in Kalifornia and accepted it. We packed his incredible amount of tools, furniture and other household and personal item. We talking a full 35 foot semi trailer. They got out to the land of fuckthewhiteguyistan, and he started that good federal job. Shortly after ward he told his teenaged daughter that he was going divorce is wife. The bitch wife and kids later took a trip to mommy dearest's homeland the good ol' Phillipine Islands. Daughter told mommy dearest about the impending divorce and the PI famil discussed it. Evidently in the PI version of Catholicism divorce in not approved unless ther is something horrible happening in the family. So, the day of there departure back to the land of the BIG PX the daughter told her cousins that Daddy had been sexually molesting her for many years. She was 12 at the time I believe. Family come back to the USA and the PI family calls mommie dearest and tell her of the story tols in the PI's. MD calls the cops and tells them this story AND tells them that Daddy has guns and is a violent man. At 2:00AM the trustworthy Riverside POPO execute a felony no knock raid on Daddy's house. 12 guys with machine guns pointing at my brother. They took him into custody and recorded a call the popo made to his daughter. The recording was too damaged to present in court and the police said they threw it away. Many months later when things were not looking good for the prosecution the recording showed up and had been enhanced to a edusable state. It was later found that a written transcription was read aloud and recorded and present as the original recording. The daughter and mommy dearest had a script ready and proceeded to tell a fantastic story of molestation that supposedly started when she was 7 or 8.When the forms were filled out, guess what, my brothers name was not on It, the name of one his sons friends was on it. Now, mommy dearest never noticed anything in all those years, my brother frequently worked out of state and daughter always sent him emails telling him she missed him, loved her daddy and hated her mommy, please come home and save me from mommy...... You get the picture. When her Daddy was gone she was almost in a state of depression, she became withdrawn and childish. When Daddy came home she became a normal animated little girl. He has over 600 emails she sent to him when he went out of state. Months and years go by, Several lawyers took his money and dis nothing. One lawyer told him he was a man and to take what he has coming to him! So now two years have gone by, the prosecution has never once put the girl in front of a judge. The girl has never been taken to a doctor or a shrink. The so called mother never noticed anything and her family never notice anything No one notice or said anything in all those years of supposed abuse.The judge remanded this case back to the local court since the prosecution was never prepared and then told the prosecution how to execute the case! (There will be a lawsuit over this and a disbarment of a judge with the help of the Bar Association) . So finally after two years of hiding the girl, making up stories and coaching her on what to say the big day came. Witness' were flown in from his home state for both sides. In the end the prosecution had NO evidence just say so. The Defense had many people that could and did refute every bit of prosecution testimony. The jury made their misinformed decision and found my brother guilty of 4 counts of child abuse. The jury also referred to his family and witnesses as hicks, rednecks and liars. Now many of the dates on which they claimed these things happened, my brother was not even in the state and had evidence to prove it, the court dismissed that evidence, the court dismissed those 600 emails, the prosecution presented NO evidence. The descriptions his daughter gave came directly from pornographic movies or stories and were worse with every telling of the story. They were filled with lurid, graphic descriptions of sexual acts and depravities. But not one piece of evidence was presented. Now my brother is looking at 14 years in jail and having his name on a damned predator list for the rest of his life. With no evidence.  I can hardly wait to see how the divorce trial come out now.
