Personally I don't like Hollow Grind Edges for anything but razors but its very popular with people who Grind and do not Forge their steel. The argument tends to go on and on and on.

The hollow grind is the way the blade has been ground, but you will be working only on the very edge. You can put whatever apex on the edge that you like. I ran into a similar problem with my full convex ground blades…I wanted to put a different edge on instead of a convex edge and I did. No problem. You can do the same with your hollow ...

With a hollow grind, there's generally less steel directly behind the edge, which can make it more prone to chipping. As far as overall strength of the blade is concerned, both hollow and flat grinds can either start at the spine or below it. However, many hollow grinds start below the spine and many flat grinds start at it.

Ah that is a good plan. Especially considering the grind tends to be asymmetrical with a flat grind on one side and hollow on the other. Might have to adjust the pein side of a hammer just for this purpose or make some sort of a hardy tool. Means I can lay the flat side right on the anvil. Ah something to play with.

A blade's grind is its cross-sectional shape in a plane normal to the edge. Grind differs from blade profile, which is the blade's cross-sectional shape in the plane containing the blade's edge and the centre contour of the blade's back (meaning the shape of the blade when viewed from the side, i.e. clip point, spear point, etc.).The grind of a blade should not be confused with the bevel ...

Hollow grinding goes back to the era when most home grinders were six inch (150mm) diameter. At that smaller diameter, the hollow is much more pronounced. This facilitates "two point" grinding. In my opinion, one can essentially ignore the hollow of a 250mm Tormek wheel. (By visual comparison, I also find little difference between the 200 and ...

The smaller the wheel, obviously the smaller the "hollow". The most common size wheel I have seen over the years is a 10". Personally, when I do produce a blade with a hollow grind, I will most often use a 10" wheel, but because I demand that the grind be "right", and not one of those aforementioned perversions, the size wheel is determined by ...
