Looks good Thom. Apparently no one else wants to comment one them. Jmbullman
on the 3rd and 4th pics it looks like the profile is very flat, but less so on the 5th one...
I like the general look of the blade. If it was up to me, Id have the tip a tad lower, but that's just me.
what was the original profile?
Those tips come high real high but I have discovered that going on like it I ground the spine down a little on this one I didn't want to go very far and this phone camera still ain't the best so don't judge to much by it, it came with absolutely no edge at all just a thick square edge, so for stones and a cheap harbor freight grinder I think I did pretty good. According to the 45x microscope their is hardly any recognizable scratch pattern which is what I wanted the edge is even and so is the spine compared to what it came in as no handle and a thicker piece of steel. I'll take that none every day weather the camera makes it look flat or not. Peace jmbullman. And on the third and forth shot I was standing about 10 feet back to fit it in the camera lens I don't have a lot of options with this camera but the firs and second shot should show it not really flat just a nice edge. That's basically what I was wanting to show. The tips come very high on these and would require a lot of work to lower it I had a person want his to look like a remedy tip straight across like the French and I did it it took 4 trizak belts to grind it down to the profile and tip he wanted after that I told myself next time he can just by his own legend or ultimatum, I lost my butt and nerve doing that on. Peace jmbullman

Trizact belts work best for finish grinding. if you are having to remove a lot of metal, get Norton Ceramic belts.
They have newer belt called,
Ceramic Alumina Plus Y-wt in 2 x 72" Maybe other sizes? I just tested these this week for Scott at www.tru-grit.com/
They are a excellent low cost Ceramic. There have been problems lately with the backing on the Norton Blaze plus
Ceramic depositing crud on the flat Platen & Wheels.
These new Alumina plus cost less than half of the Blaze and cut for about 70% of the life of a Blaze.
Nice work on the knives. If you have a issue/Question about Grinding with a belt machine. Feel free to call me at the shop or at home.
