Default Question or 2

Hi I have just ordered a Wilkinson sword Dartmoor blank it is tempered to 57 Rockwell but has no grind.

How do I put a scandi grind on it without putting heat into the blade the blank is 8mm thick so a lot of metal to remove.

I do not have work shop facilities but I do have a Tormak whetstone grinder, is this suitable as I think it would be too slow and take too much ware on the stone.

what angle does it require for a scandi grind ?

Are there any knife makers that would grind it for me and if so how much would it cost

You won't have much of your tormek left if you grind the bevels onto that!

i'll drop you a pm about grinding it.

yes I thought as much. Wonder how they did it at Wilkinson, I thought the tempering would have been don after all the grinding?
Look forward to your PM, thank you
