This was a PERFECT tutorial. Thank you very much for sharing! I like that you solder the guard on - not enough people are doing that, anymore.

If I may ask, would it be possible to see a photo of the small wheel attachment/platen you are using on your grinder to sand the blade? That looks like a smart modification.

Thanks again - beautiful knife! Also, I like your maker's mark.

I am left with a small wheel bought in a shop for knifemaker in Us

Hi Jim, wy don't you make one by yourself?
just basic tools and materials, it took me 20 minutes to make one...it is so simple!!
I was admiring that little scribe, didnt even think of making it myself...doh, which is kinda funny since I made my own 2x72 grinder :)
