    Default Shoulder problems

    Anyone had any experience grinding a shoulder similar to this?

    I've had a few of these in the scrap bin. I can do a pretty good job with a file pre heat treat, it's grinding it back and blending in at final grind when steel is hard. This is a members requirement for a project I'm doing, hope he is patient. Any advice appreciated.

    Hi,
    The image is just an example of what I'm trying to achieve with a custom I'm making. This is what I'd like to be able to accomplish.

    A shoulderless razor?


    Wouldn't you just grind the blade hollow into the tang and then taper the tang or alternatively taper the tang and grind the blade hollow into the tang?

    Yeah,
    That's what I thought. There must be some nuance to the technique. Mine looks uneven and a bit crap, maybe some grinders can chime in with some detail? The biggest contact wheel I have is 8".

    It's a matter of grinding far into the tang, and then tapering the tang.
    Depending on how deep you grind, how far you grind and how much you taper, you get that effect.
    As to the un-evenness: practice Sorry I cannot be more helpful than that. Getting tight and symmetrical grinds like that is 'just' a matter of doing it many times.

    +1 to the practice bit.

    You can also use some steel blue and scribe a grind line on the face. For a gently curved shoulder like that, I'd lay down some electrical tape and use that to scribe rather than freehanding it.
    Let me know if you need any help with shaving, honing, etc.
