Old Knife Restoration

I found this rusty old knife stuck in a door of my house. Really like the shape of it but is needs a new handle and some love. I think it was handmade a long time ago, not sure about the steel its made from but its quite well hardened as the file test shows. I used Padauk for the handle and some finish nails for the pins. I don’t wanted to polish the blade because of the deep pitting. I used my homemade beeswax-linseed oil to finish it.
Thank you very much for watching!!
