I made myself a reasonable jig for grinding bevels on my knives. It’s very hard to do that with bad or wiggly jigs (that I had before) and – for a non-smith like me – virtually impossible to do only by hand. This is the result:

So, since I’ve been a proud owner of a decent welder for over half a year now, it was again time to put that boy to use. I adapted a near fool proof construction from… (who’d have thunk?) Youtube! The guy is awesome, really, do subsribe to his channel!

Now I can finally go on with the new knives!
