Nov 9, 2017. 18. For those new to knife making, and considering jigs vs free hand. It does not necessarily take 10,000 hours or 200 knives to get good. I have approximately 40 knives under my belt from what I can figure, grinding part time for just under 3 years now. Never used a jig, never even used a rest.
Hello, I use a twelve inch wheel for most of my hollow grinding. I grind my blades as you described above, edge upward and pulling the handle toward yourself when getting to the curved section with a slight twisting motion. I scribe the edge with two parallel lines about .020 apart for keeping things even and centered. Practice, practice !!

I don39;t know. It may be the ticket for your friend. I would think a properly setup angle iron jig would be easier.6
