Hey everyone, Very new here. But started on some new knives last night. These are smaller and intended to be either neck knives or trout & bird knives, just something small and sharp. My first knives I ground with a jig, tried to use the same jig with these and the knives being much smaller and not as deep meant I very quickly couldn't see what I was doing. Only two options that I could see, toss them or learn to Freehand. So really, only one choice Thankfully I had watched a bunch of youtube vids from various guys and learned a few do's and don'ts so I wasn't going in totally blind. This is the result of my first round at 40 grit: I've also got some new Micarta curing right now as well. Will do at least two different types for these ones. Purple and Pink for the longer one with the point on the bottom and black and green for one of the drop points. I'm still undecided as to what to do with the second drop point. More pics will come as I progress. Happy with them thus far!
