    This is as in depth a work in progress thread that anyone could ask for. Wonderful execution, and a beautiful knife indeed. Excellent job. Thank you very much.

    I'm fairly certain that's a small screw press or fly press.

    Yeah flypress .... another thing on my want list but I think would want one of the flywheel style ones instead of the counterweight style. I could see myself knocking some teeth out haha. Great visual tutorial ...beautiful knife. Thank you!

    Wonderful! I have a question though, in the photo's it looks like you began the bevel grind by hollow grinding and then went / ended up with full-flat or convex? Just wondering if this is a technique I am not aware of!

    I know an it's an older thread, if someone else has an answer, love to hear about it!

    :beer: Griff.
