    Nielsen Disc grinder system

    How hard/much time is it to change a disc on a regular grinder? Say I wanted a flat disc for most work, but a beveled disc for longer kitchen blades. Can I switch them out without too much difficulty or are they more permanent and I would need another grinder?

    I also just eyeball it and adjust when I think one needs to be moved slightly.

    I'm assuming the 1* bevel is very helpful for gyutos and other long kitchen knives?

    Sheathmaking: tips and tricks and getting started

    For the straighter punching of holes with an awl, put the awl blade in your drill press and punch them that way. You don't actually turn the press on, but it holds it 90° to the leather and you can punch the holes quicker that way too.

    Make your own sheath or send it out?

    I make my own. I feel like a knife isn't complete until it has a sheath. Even when I start doing kitchen knives I plan on making a saya for them. I haven't done any kydex yet, but love the look of a well made leather sheath.
