    I've only used the Ryobi to grind about 4 blades, but have since built myself a 25mm x 2000mm belt grinder. I have used and abused this little grinder through this build for weeks, and I must add it's still going strong.
    The only slight downside I'd say, is the time it takes to change belts. It also cloggs up eventually, and needs regular cleaning...none real serious issues though!

    hmmm , this knife blanks thing has got me thinking , have an engineering buddy that has a direct line to laser cutting , would that be cheating ?

    I suppose the whole idea behind endeavoring to make knives is the art form and shear determination to make your own tool ....

    Nope Danie, laser cutting or even better water jet cutting ain't cheating, especially not if it's your own design. The laser cutting service offered by the knife supplies dealer I'm using can never get it right, even when I indicate and stipulate dimensions with arrows. I've had so many let downs with the laser cutting service that I've given up on it
    It will be a major time saver. It's not all that expensive either considering the time and grinding belts saved, maar nouja, one day when they can crack it I might give it a go again.
    Until then it's brute force and blisters.
