    THANKS!
    Very timely because I'm working on some chef's knives for my sisters right now, and on the first one I ground it flat to the spine on the belt sander and decided never to try that again! I've got bevels on the second one and wasn't sure what to do next. I wanted to blend it but wasn't really sure how to proceed.

    NOW I KNOW!!!

    What you been up to, I miss your videos brother

    Great vid, Mike. I've been making chef knives with a convex bevel, just because I don't have the skill to do what you just showed. I'm working on one now. I think I'll go back and attempt to follow your instructions, and thin the blade more into a flat grind. Hopefully I can apply your technique with at least some degree of improvement. Thanks again.

    Look at that smile at the end. I think it's therapeutic for me to watch your videos. Sorry I left the island we would have had a lot in common brother

    LOL you sure it's not the mother ship, hovering over your house, that's making your lights flicker?

    Great tutorial. I have been wondering how to this exact stuff for some time now as a beginner in knifemaking and this was eye-opening. Thank you so much! Subbed.

    hi there what steel did you use and did you heat treat and then temper the knife

    coming from the auto paint world , water and soap will let the paper slide and load less.

    Awesome vid, Mike! How thick was your stock to start with vs finished on this one? Love it!

  15. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Dude. I've been making knives for 12 years now, and your vids are some of the best refresher tutorials I've come across. Good Job.

  16. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Thanks for a great video. How do you put the final edge on the kitchen knife?

  17. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Is this the blade that I purchased Mike?

  18. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Do you ever use your surface conditioning belts for final finish?

  19. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Nice video, great job,thanks Mike.

  20. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Damn you're good!

  21. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Well done sir. I'm bummed to see how few views you get on your videos. You're just as informative as the guys getting half a million+ views, and I really like your down-to-earth presentation. I only started making knives a couple months ago, and watching channels like yours is very inspiring to get out to the shop and practice.

  22. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Great video because you are a very good teacher. We can see your process very clearly. Thanks

  23. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Great video….you can achieve excellent results if you're willing to put in the time. I've never been able to pull off a perfect grind straight off the grinder so for me hand sanding is a necessity.

  24. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Thanks for the info. Do you have or use a knife vise for finishing? A standard vise work great for some things but when I work on knife handles, there is nothing like a good knife vise.

    it's not fair you purposely screw up and it still looks better the my best….

  26. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Excellent video. Thank you for always smiling and being positive… Might sound stupid but it's very therapeutic.

  27. September 24, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Great video Mike, keep up the good work!
