So I started from shaping spine on the 40 grit belt.
And here is the result of shaping on the grinder.
Later I had to refinish all curves on the handles with files (another gift from my girlfriend).
I tried to do that over the sink, but I couldn't mount my vice properly.
Then I have tried portable workbench, but it wasn't comfortable as well.
I have mounted vice to the table in my saloon.
After shaping with files I wanted to even out all edges. I've used pillar drill with grinding stone.
And here is the final result.
Not bad so far. My next step is to make distal taper.
