    the 3 hardest things ive found to grind r fillet knives, razors and swords

    I've always wondered how you could grind a fillet knife without it constantly bending out of shape and ruining your grind. I guess put something on the other side to back it up to take the flex out of it.

    One book I have advocates grinding filet knives with a workrest in place on the grinder. You slip the thin blade into the space between the grinding wheel and the workrest, then pull back on the blade. This flexes the blade and pushes it against the wheel. Seems tricky to me, but I can see how it would work in theory...

    i find it easer to just grind it like i do everything else
    i,m sure them fixtures would work
    when i grind them
    the blade will flex in a long arc as i come across the wheel
    almost to a 90 but not quite
    esp.out on the point

    Bruno, if you're looking for the Goddard book I'd check amazon.de that way the shipping is cheaper than when you order it on amazon.com.

    I got mine there as well. It's an interesting read.
