Hollow Grinding Video, at long last...

My goal with this video series was to make watching them as close to a shop visit as possible. This video covers two DVDs and runs for seven hours! Of course, actually making the knife took much longer than that and the video is carefully edited so that you don't have to wade through much repetition but nothing important is left out. Hollow grinding is the major portion of this video but several other important subjects are also covered:

For the raw beginner there is a small section on hand tools, drills, vices,etc
I also quickly step through the building of a simple full tang kit knife

Then, we make a Kydex sheath for the kit knife

Hollow grinding is covered in great detail
A guard is milled for the blade.
This is a through tang knife so we look at drilling a hole through a 5" block
Instruction is given for the use of JB Weld and for AcraGlas
We drill and tap the pommel
The handle is shaped using the contact wheel, the platen, and the small wheel
We learn how to protect the spine of the blade while shaping the guard
The safe use of the buffer is covered, as are compounds and buffing wheels
After the knife is finished there is a detailed tutorial on making a welted leather sheath for it
A method for creating the initial edge on a new blade is demonstrated
The knife is sharpened and the logo is etched

The Hollow Grinding DVD is $15. I know, a ridiculously low price for something that took nearly two years to make but I'm not doing this for the money. If you would like a copy Paypal $15 to If you don't have a Paypal account just send an email to that same address and we'll go from there ...
