Are you asking how to do it on the WE, or just how to do it?

I'd probably fire up that belt grinder you have. :)

Draw on the blade how you want it to look, then grind 90 deg. to the edge and/or spine (being careful not to overheat of course).

I'd probably do this one on both sides...

I did a knife a while back... intending to do it all on the WE, but about 1/2 way thru I folded. :dry:

(You can read it here if you want.)

Most was done from the edge side, but a bit from the spine.
Just make sure you grind far enough back to keep a nice shape.... working toward the edge works for me.

Hope that helps.

Another thread to look at...

Tip Repair

Edit: Put this in another thread... thought I'd add it here too.

After seeing it in the video... you could just do a spine side repair...
