Forging an Herb Chopper from a file

This was a fun and fairly simple project for an upcoming craft show. I tested a piece of the old Heller file I used, and it hardened in oil, but when I Heat Treated the chopper, it wouldn’t harden in oil, so had to do a water quench. Not sure why the test worked in oil, but it is what it is.
