"Inglorious Bastard"

A large utility/fighter made from a Nicholson "Bastard" cut file, from the good old days when they made them in the USA.

The Hamon is not by any design, it occurred during heat treat. Adding some beauty to the used rough looking basterd file.

This design was inspired by a World War I book that is part fiction part fact? When the "Bayonet" was as important as your "Rifle", part of the daily weapons maintence was putting a keen edge on.

I thought of calling it the "DoughBoy Delight"?
