Is there anything I should know about clipping my 11 besides not to mess it up?
I haven't personally clipped a knife before, but mark your clip before you grind, and if you want more clip, then make another mark and keep going. Measure thrice, cut once.
For me the clipping was easy, cutting the swedges is another story. Just keep it cool and post lots of pictures.
Thanks guys. I might go to my dads and use his belt sander after Isaac passes or my dremal. Not sure yet
The best rule to abide by, is if the metal is too hot to touch to your lips, its too hot. I just ground the ramp off of my BK7 the day before yesterday, with a bucket of water right next to the grinder, make a 3 second pass, dunk it, 3 seconds, dunk it, and so on. My blade never got more than palm warm the whole time.
Stay away from the dremel..Trust me I know.
Ok thanks guys I guess I'll use the belt sander next time I get to my dads
That should make quick work of it and givse you a good smooth profile. are you going for a bowie style clip or something different?
I'm am not sure yet. I might just wing it
Any links or videos on how to do this?
while touching the blade to your lips to check the temperature, kiss it for good luck.
