    Hi Everyone, After around 5 years off from forging knives I have decided to start doing it again. All I ever had was a gas forge, Canadian tire belt grinder, anvil, etc so over the past 5 years I have stock piled a few pieces of gear (variable speed BEE 2x72 belt grinder, steel, exotic wood, etc) so when I had the right workshop I could do a better job. Anyways, I have a tool that I don't know what it's purpose is. If I had to guess it would be something about grinding the right angle edge on a knife, but I am not sure. Hoping someone could shed a little light on it. Thanks! Hopefully these pics are accessible. :D

    Looks like a hollow grinding jig, mount it to your work rest and push the blade through edge down from tip to ricasso and back out, then give that little brass dial another twist to slide the outfit closer to the wheel and bob's your uncle.

    Agreed. I've seen something like it in the Jantz catalog.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I appreciate it. I am glad that I have this tool now as I have always had difficulty free handing my grinding. I honestly can't wait to use it.
