Take your angle grinder and cut out the knife out of the steel. Be sure to wear all safety gear!

Step 3: Sharpening

Take your grinding wheel and put it on your angle grinder. Then, start sharpening your knife. Grind the edge evenly on each side at 30 degrees until you have a nice and sharp edge. I forgot to take pictures of this process.

Step 4: Cleaning Up
