    Ah yes, the sigma grind.
    Honestly one if not the coolest knife blade shape I've ever seen. Such crisp and satifying lines, an amazing balance of curves and straight edges, and my gosh the damascus patterns contrasting with the gold inlays... DAMN

    Man as a collector of custom tactical knives and cnc machinist who is also trying to become a maker you really inspire me. Its easy to get sucked into the idea that I need a CNC Mill, a lathe or more tooling for my manual mill to do something but when I watch your vidoes I am reminded that almost anything can be achieved with the tools I have at my disposal and my hands.

Its so meditative watching this guy work and you can really feel the love of the craft come through in these videos. That may be partially due to the great cinematography too, but you know what I'm sayin. If Ian Mccollum is Gun Jesus, then Kyle Royer is Definitely Knife Budah.

    This is functional art. Considering how much effort you put into these and make sure every detail is crisp and flawless, it makes me wonder, how do you prefer these blades to be used? Sitting in a glass display basically untouched? Used carefully and quite little? Going into every day practical use? Or is it simply up to the end buyer how they want their blade to live?
    Because on the one hand, it's a proper knife in every way. On the other hand, it's so well made that you end up being sad over every tiny scratch and nick that blades get when they are used. :D
    Kinda like when someone makes a really ornately decorated cake. Sure, it's meant to be eaten, but... do you really want to destroy it?

    A tip for splitting belts that I came up with, take some 1-2-3 blocks, and clamp them in a vise with a box cutter blade between them, making sure that everything is below the top of the vise jaws. The jaws will align the belt to to the blade, the 1-2-3s will set the spacing. Drop the belt around the vise so that it is hanging with the belt between the jaws cloth backing towards the blade, pierce the belt and run the loop. This will split your belt into two smoothe edged 1" wide belts. I developed this method a few years back when I had a 2"×48" belt grinder and couldn't source belts locally. I had to buy them online, pay shipping, and then wait for the belts. Then I discovered that the local hardware store sold 6"×48" belts, I split these into three 2" belts and saved a lot of money. I got three belts for the price of two, saved the shipping and, most importantly cut out the wait.
    Oh , yeah forgot to mention, I used a wood worker's vise with nice big flat jaws.

    A little tip: instead of Windex you may want to use WD-40 to hand sand instead. Windex from my experience makes the sandpaper "gunk up" with fillings amd paper dust while WD-40 keeps the debris away.
