David, use the belt sander. I posted this method a while ago (shaping the lands of my Kiyohisa oire nomi).

The platform here is at 6:1

Pre-shaping ...

Shaped ....

Blackened ...

I have used a grinder in the past. Made a number of dovetail chisels that way. But this is much neater. So-much-so, I have done many of my Japanese chisels this way. The mods in the end result is impossible to find. Vintage Koyamaichi chisel ....

Regards from Perth

Derek
