Daniel, I hope it is O.K with you that I started this thread. You have always been so helpful to me and many other beginner knife makers. I will start the thread off with a question about grinding Ti. What advise would you give someone that has never worked with Ti concerning the differences between grinding steel like 1084 or O1 and Ti? Edit: I wanted to say,this thread was not my idea. It was Farchyld's idea and should be given credit.
