We have rules about using bad words here. But sometimes you just have to break the rule to make a point. That's right, this post is about grinding jigs. I can hear that huge intake of breath as you hardcore types read this. I know you can't imagine spending all that time over a hot forge, carefully shaping your blade, only to clamp it in some sissy contraption to grind the bevels. Real makers grind by hand. If I was a fixed blade maker, I guess I'd probably learn to hand grind too. But there's a difference between grinding a hunter with a 20cm blade and a slippy with a 7.5cm blade and a 2cm tang. At the bottom of it all, I like the consistency that a jig gives my grinds. So the questions is do any of you use a jig to grind bevels? (Heck, let's make it a poll.) If you do use a jig, tell us about it. Mine is a simple thing; just a couple of pieces of angle iron with one side milled so I grind evenly on both sides of the blade. Here's a couple of pictures.
