    Hi All, new to B.C. and to canada. Moved here from South Africa and brought some machinery with me as well as a few knife making supplies. Have been on 2 knife making courses in SA, but still a newbie. That hollow grind is hit and miss at this stage. I have a few blades ready for heat treating tho. Will post a few pictures. Look forward to learning a whole lot more through the forum. Cheers.

    Hey Barry,

    Welcome to Canada and the Canadian Knifemaker Forum. Great to have you here!
    I think hollow grinds are hit & miss for all but those uncaffeinated razor makers.

    Looking forward to seeing what you are up to.

    Dan
