Back On The Grinder

Jason was pleased with the way it looked, so it was time for him to use the grinder to sharpen the knife. This was the first time Jason was using the grinder after the incident according to MEAWW.
Without hesitation, Jason Hawk started working and within seconds, he got the result that he was hoping for. With a perfectly shaped blade, the next step was to connect the wooden handle to the blade. Once he got that into place, Jason Hawk was really pleased with the result.
Jason did admit his hand was not at 100 percent, however, it can get the job done. When Hawk showed his family the finished product they thought it looked good. With the knife in hand, Jason believed he could sell it for a good price.
