one tiny piece of advice...
after you grind that much you
should have included how to re-harden the steel.

he would only have to re-harden if he applied the grinder long enough to overheat the metal.

Looks like it could be grinded down more.
Nice, you may want to go back, and change the spelling. Griding should be grinding. It is nice I will try this. You could have kept it as an awl, and said what that was for.
