Hi! Sorry it took me while to reply. I was away for the weekend.
I use a Dremel Flex Shaft tool.
1. Tape the blade
2. Pad a bench vise with thick leather strips to further protect the blade.
3. Firmly hold the blade, edge up, in the vise. Clamp the blade not the handle. Wrap the handle with paper towel and tape to keep metal filings from going into the handle recess.
4. I start with a 5/32" metal removal tungsten bit (1/8" works also)to open the half-moon shape hole and then switch to a 5/32" chain saw sharpening round silicon carbide type bit. This is as far as I go with the typical Spyderco finish. A mirror finished blade will need further steps.
5. Try to anchor your hands well in order to steady yourself, start right where the ricasso meets edge, keep the bit straight and perpendicular to the blade, use a steady hand but don't force it. Let the Dremel do the work. Go straight down to about 3/32" to 1/8"
6. Work quickly to avoid overheating. If in doubt, go a little bit at a time and allow to cool. I have plenty of practice so I don't worry. The only problem occurs when the steel starts to change color but I have yet to see that by doing this.
7. Practice with a few junk knives first!!! And the number #1 rule of grinding: remove a little at a time, you cannot put metal back!

Good luck and post pics if you try it.

Regards


Shike

Came across it on ebay and could't resist.
Just had to add it to my small collection.

I'm addicted to Spyderco knifes and multitools.
This is the best of both :D

I didn't have time to play with it yet but it feels solid and heavier then most other multietools.
I'm sure i'll hurd myself a few times with it as usual :D

thanks Miguel, I owe it all to oregon ;) as i'm really not saavy on Torches :rolleyes: the description from this link (scroll down to Photon) :

http://www.equipped.org/ORSummer2007.htm

says: "Simply connect the magnets to the positive and negative terminals of any 6 volt or less battery (typical AA through D-cell size or CR-123 for example, but not a 9v) and it charges the light"

Really ingenious design.... I also attached a "neck lanyard" to the light.... those four Nichia white led's are "blindingly" bright! no idea what the lumens rating would be....but it's impressive ;)
