Finished the bevels on another knife today. This is the same design as the one I finished yesterday. I flat-ground it, but approached the grind a bit differently. After finishing the one yesterday, I realized that it would make a really nice camp-knife. In an effort to make it a better all around user, I raised the grind line a bit. This should make it a better slicer for food prep and similar such duties. It's 15/64" (about .230" after cleaning up the flats), so it's still beefy enough for light chopping.
I bumped-up the speed of the KMG to 50% for today's grinding. Previously, I had been grinding bevels at 35-40%. The higher speed, combined with a bit more pressure, resulted in faster results and less fatigue. I used a 60-grit 3M 977, which are great, but I'm thinking about adding a 40 or 50-grit belt to my next order for experimenting with.
I'm thinking of using ironwood or cocobolo scales and putting a convex edge on this one.
