Clip Point Bevel

Hi folks. I may be in over my head in a project that started out as a request for a large Bowie knife from my nephew. I'm working with 1/4" A2 steel and am trying to decide the best way to grind the false edge on the clip point end of the blade. I am not confident free handing the bevel, and wondering if my bevel jig would work mounted on the tool stand perpendicular to the platen. On the other hand, I've seen others grind the bevel on the contact wheel parallel to the direction of the wheel. I am more comfortable using the bevel jig on the platen, but the curve of the clip point has me a bit worried in terms of the geometry of the curve on the platen. Any suggestions would be most welcome. See my photos of the knife design actual knife from my hopeful nephew.
