New Baldor grinder and new kitchen knife experiements.
The other week I picked up a Baldor belt grinder off of Kijiji, which was technically ‘used’, but had so little wear it appears as if the factory which originally bought it had promptly shelved it in storage. It has a nice wide two inch belt that is perfect for doing flat grinds and I’m excited to get using this for some kitchen knife ideas. In the photos above you can see a low carbon test I made of a paring knife with oversize blade for a more general purpose tool. The blade has been flat ground but the rest of the tang has just been blanked out without grip mounting holes drilled or surface finishing.
