File Work

Hi folks, I was wondering if someone might guide me to an instructional source to learn about the the great file work that many of you knife makers use to embellish your knives. Print, video, or on line tutorials would be great. Thanks in advance. Fred

You can look under filwork in the tutorials section at Artknife.com I have a tutorial for about 15 different patterns listed and some of the files used.
