Does anyone have a tried and true method for adding the nail nick to a folder blade? I like the traditional wider middle tapering to each corner but not sure how to perfectly (symmetrically) do it.
I don't see why a "nail nick punch" wouldn't work, especially with carbon steel blades - have to be careful not to upset the steel too muchKen, I will admit I had to look up a “fly cutter” had no idea what it was. Do you use those on a mill?
I was thinking though that I could easily make a “nail nick punch” and hammer it in hot. It will upset a little steel near the spine but I could hammer or grind it down easily. Has anyone tried that?
