HT1 HIDDEN TANG - GRIND & SANDING


I used an old 60 grit belt to knock off the sharp corners and then put a new 60 on. Pulling across each side and dipping in the blade in the water bucket after every pass or two.
The basic shape of the grind follows the arc of the belly.
This is what the rough grind looks like.
Now to some sand paper to clean up the bevel. Wet the sand paper to lubricate, keep the paper from clogging and galling the steel and keep the dust down.
This is after some hand sanding. I'll true up the bevel and match the two faces as closely as possible.
