DH11 - BEVEL GRIND


I originally thought about making this knife with  a scandi grind but changed my mind at the last minute.




I take to the bevelling jig and get the angle correct.












Then work it into a flat grind. I recently bought two new Nicholson files that work this steel quite easily.








After getting the bevel loosely shaped, I reduced the mass of the tang by drilling a bunch of holes. This will be lighter and better balanced when the slabs go on.

I also added three little half rounds for a thumb grip. This is done with a 3/16" round file and a steady hand.

This is a wickedly strong little magnet. I used it to hold the steel while the belt is rolling. Saves on gloves.
