Yer Johnson

Yer Johnson,

Howdy Everybody,

Just forged my first Johnson, file that is, into a blade. I reckon it'll be a skinner. First I need to heat treat it and I don't know what a Johnson file is made from. Any ideas what the material is?

It seem that my lack of internet knowledge is prevening me from posting the pictures directly into this thread, I did it before, maybe I need some help! :confused:

Larry - to display a picture directly in your post look for the IMG button above the message area when posting, click on the IMG button, then type or paste the URL into the popup box, and then click OK. Preview your reply to make sure everything is working and then submit it.

Hope that helps
Chuck

Ouch, don't let your Johnson get too close to the anvil.

A Johnson in hand is worth two in the bush!

A Johnson in the bush is worth a dozen in the hand.

There is no substitute for bush.
