Coleton posted a topic in Design and CritiqueDo I NEED to grind a specific edge geometry like let's say a 45° angle with a jig on my knives for the secondary bevel? Or could I just grind it for how I want it to cut freehand. Steep for slicing and thicker for chopping?
Edge "Fuller" / forging tool Question
Josh A Weston posted a topic in Tools and Tool MakingI'm in the process of making a new sword and I've got it almost rough shaped out. I'm getting ready to put the edge bevels and then do the center fuller. I have already made my fullering tool for the center fuller but I want to shape my edge bevels first. I was thinking about making a similar fullering tool to shape those edge and hopefully push some steel into the center of the blade. I would then push the edges into just short of where I want their final shape. Then go back through with the center fuller and push them out to just beyond the final shape and grind down. The main reason I think doing this will be helpful is to reduce some grinding and to help reduce the amount of bevel dents I get in the steel from hand hammering them in (still only been at this for a little over a year and I'm no pro... yet). I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback especially from someone who may have tried this already. Thanks!
