Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Has anyone here ground SR101 steel and what does it take? I have no experience in knife grinding, but I'd like to take some serious fat off my Battle Rat, grind the blade down to 4mm, straighten the belly, make it pointier and turn it into a quick, light Pig Sticker/Fighter. Any suggestions, warnings? I'm thinking slow speed belt grinder, coarse belt...how many belts I'm looking at?
