    Those that own a KMG

    Scherar-Not sure how the prices compare but have you looked at a Wilmont? That's Chris Williams' grinder and he has a forum here. Might want to check him out. His work rests are adjustable.

    $1000 budget grinder for part timer

    Since y'all have mentioned Wilmont I'll chime in. I've got the big Wilmont grinder which is awesome but the Little Buddy is nothing to sneeze at either and I've talked to a lot of beginning knifemakers who have invested in a Little Buddy and love it. And Chris Williams who makes the Wilmont is a...

    opinions on neck knives needed.

    I make what I call a "fixed blade pocket knife" and make a kydex sheath for it. I set the sheath up so it will accommodate a Spyderco G-Clip or small Tek-lock belt clip.

    Is it cheating?

    I think that at the end of the day honesty is what it's all about. Be up front with how you got to the final product and most people will be fine with that. I've got a HF bandsaw that has cut many blanks but I was not really making much progress in building up inventory since I'm a part time...
