The company that I work for has a machine to grind it’s own knives (for a multi-moulder). I took a 2 inch cut-off from a ground knife, and turned into a chisel blade. It’s really just a prototype design, i wanted to see what i could with it, but use it everyday. It works great to clean edgebands. The blade high-speed-steel, which makes it really hard to grind and sharpen, but once sharp, it stays sharp. the handle and cover are quarter-sawn white oak. i burned the oak with a lighter and then sanded it to give it that blacked effect. i finished it with a wipe on poly, i figured any spray finish would eventually chip.
