sharp stuff

Recommended Posts


One for Socks. I have a Chinese water stone amongst many other forms of keeping an edge on my blades. When you, or indeed all the others on here, who I follow with interest, keep a real edge on ? I remember a guy when coming back from Rhiyadh who did nothing but sharpen his blade. It was a long flight as you know. Jok.

its thin stock only 2.5mm to start so flexes alot i straped it to a piece of 3x2 wood but its more tricky than that mate you only grind to the start of the handle leaving a triangle to spine then itbecomes tricky  you can feather the grinds in by hand but not above the spine if you grind it right it will give a distel taper  from handle to tip lot of hand finishing mate  .

Very easy to over grind or burn the metal then ... what grit belts did you use for that mate.

i grind before heat treatement mate so no issues there  i know from experience that ive never had a blade come back from h/t  warped the 

, i use 60 grt ceramic grain belts to ruff out and first grind then a 150grt ali oxide belt then its alot od hand finishing i fkn hate to see grind lines and scratches on a blade 👍  its abit overkill 60 grt belt  but there is cobolt in this steel  it would eat ali oxide belts

Yhea that’s what I’ve been playing around with. Also found that soapy water works really well.
