So I’m working on my first knife. It’s sort of a little slimmer knife made of 01 tool steel. I have a few questions and was wondering if I could get a little help. The first is how far I should bring my grind down on the blade. How thick should I leave it at the edge when I go to heat treat? I’ve heard a dime’s width but that seems awfully thick for 1/8th inch stalk. Then next is about finishing. I sort of want to put a vinegar patina on it and also want to put birch wood scales on it. How do I finish the scales to protect them from the vinegar? Also how can I apply the vinegar finish to the tang of the knife? I’ll try and post pictures as I get farther along in the process. Thanks!
