    Forging skinning knife with limited tools

    Hi

    I made a bet with a friend.

    Could i forge a skinning knife from a file without
    Real anvil with a horn?

    File was 5mm thick and 38mm wide.
    Requirements for the blade was to make it
    Atleast 8mm thick from the back and 55mm wide blade.

    Geometry had to make by forging, grinding was
    Allowed to be used only for finishing and sharpening.

    Used tools.
    Rr-track as an anvil.
    Two hammers
    Angle grinder
    Locking pliers & thongs
    Wet sanding paper

    Hadn't tried anything like that before, so it was a little tricky to do.

    I named it Rude.

    I'm not sure is this a tool or not, so i placed it here.
