glyph250 Posted November 24, 2009 Share Posted November 24, 2009 (edited) Well, here it is. I'm very happy with the overall shape, and with the lessons I learned the hard way about grinding with my bench grinder (1. wear gloves with thin work; 2. keep water nearby; 3. EDGE UP). Only one problem mars its functionality--when I either hardened or tempered this blade, it curved the edge a tiny bit. The spine is still okay, for the most part. You can see it if you look closely at the picture I'm attaching. I wouldn't care if it weren't meant to be rubbed all over somebody's face, but it is. Can this be remedied, or should I scrap the blade and try again? Thanks! **Edit: I should add that the major reason I'm even bothering to fix this is that I don't want anybody pointing out that my straight razor isn't straight enough.
