HOW TO GRIND PLUNGE LINES IN KNIFE MAKING 

What is a plunge line? 

A plunge line is the line where the bevel meets the ricasso. These are formed when grinding the bevel using a sanding belt, typically a 2" x 72" ceramic belt. Plunge lines can be straight, curved, smooth or sharp. In the video you can see the plunge line being ground down. 

How do you grind the plunge line? 

Step 1: Mark your grind line 

Step 2: make the spot where you want your plunge line to terminate / stop. 

Step 3: work at the plunge line and work your way towards the tip. 

Step 4: Make sure both sides of the blade are even and consistent so you have a well balanced blade.
