I have been using the Moenworks grinding fixture for a couple of years and have been very pleased with it. Its unique design allows the user to hold a variety of blades with repeatability. It allows for very accurate positioning and angles relative to the grinder thus allowing for very light touches to position plunges and maintain the desired thicknesses along the cutting edge. It makes grinding swage grind a pleasure.
The Gen II is even better, I made some improvement to my Gen I, and several of my suggestions were incorporated into Gen II.
Flat grinds and hollow grinding has never been easier. The cost is very reasonable and that cost will be recovered with improved production and better quality which is the objective. I fully endorse it and recommend it to novice and professional makers.
I’m a British knifemaker with no connection to Jerry Moen and I’ve been using the Moen Blade Grinding Fixture for about a month now and cannot recommend it highly enough.
I’ve tinkered around making knives free-hand and with several different types of jigs on and off for 4-5 years, have a good quality 2-72” grinder, and generally have a pretty decent grounding in the principles of bevel grinding.
Previously I used the early version and could see that it had great potential, which this more recent version has really taken to the next level.
This fixture will not immediately make you into a great knife maker but if you put in the time and effort, learn from trial/error, persevere and approach things with finesse and patience, it will elevate you much quicker than anything else I’ve come across. I reckon it took me about 10 practice blades to produce something with a lovely mirror finish that I really couldn’t fault in terms of plunge/grind line symmetry.
DISCLAIMER: I am a noob to knife making. I started a couple of years ago, in the evenings and on weekends, when I had time and when my head was in the game. I probably have less than 3 dozen finished blades under my belt. I have NEVER had steady hands; they are the two main reasons I did not do demolitions in the military or become a surgeon (not skills that can tolerate a lot of "ooops"). I was getting frustrated with all the ways I kept finding to screw my blades up, and most of them had to deal with bevels. Now I know that practice is the holy grail, but I play/work how I practice, and if I practice screwed up...
I have seen about every youtube video on grinding techniques and tools, and have even tried some of them, or homemade versions of some jigs. When I saw the Moen jig, something clicked, and I pulled the trigger. I got it today. Even with the learning curve, in an hour I was able to complete the bevels (36 grit/60 grit/120 grit ceramic and finish with a 400 grit Trizac) on a blade, which normally, on a GOOD day, takes me about 4 hours free hand (Slow learner and the hands). So for me the cost became readily offset in the reduction of time it takes me to complete my bevels. So for any one else that is not a gifted/talented free-hand beveler, give this some serious consideration.
