    That's to keep the belt from going where you don't want it to go. There are carbide inserts mounted along the front side, flush with the blade.

    Cool, I could use one of these clamp thingies... Well, I could use a grinder also. Nice nakiri, Dave, just a bit too rust-prone for people like me Oh, and if I may say so - the handle sucks

    The clamp reminds me of a guitar "cheater" - at least that's what I think they are called.

    I've got another much larger version of the guide that I use to grind in the tang shape. It fits over the entire blade - very handy tool for making crisp (and even) notches for the handle to fit up against.
