Double chisel grind

Recommended Posts

Hi I know chisel grinds divide opinion somewhat! However is anyone aware of or tried a double edged dagger type blade, with a single bevel chisel edge one side, and another on the obverse of the other side? Any thoughts> I am aware of the chisel point being used on some combat knives.

Not aware of one. With a flat blade, such as the Ek design, it should be doable. With a Fairbairn design getting the geometry correct might take the advice of three wise men and a team of German engineers.

While I don't fully understand the point (no pun intended :lol:), it could look cool. I drew it out. You'll probably end up with a perfect diamond but kind of crooked it will just look like a really weird single edged knife from the profile. hope you can understand my chicken scratch doodles.

When I was a teenager I had some throwing stars that had that type of grind.  I've been meaning to go out to my grandparent's old place with a metal detector to see if I could recover any of the two dozen or so that I lost there... Someone came up with the same idea you have, though I can't recall what they're calling it, there is a line of tactical knives that uses that geometry.

I think it's this  http://www.beshknives.com/models.php  called the Besh Wedge.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.
