What I do is put packing tape on the back of a sheet of sand paper then slice it into the sized strips I need. I use the same technique for rounding handles. The tape keeps the paper from breaking. I always use a vise and start with the shoe shine then finish up and down the length I'm working.

I have some experience do some serious grinding...I would not use a dremel because one little foul up could make the blade really screwed up.

I used a cheapo norton combo stone...These are higher quality than generic hardware store combo stones. They really do cut but they dish quick but it's a disposable grinding tool so who cares.

Clamp the knife handle in a bench vise. Then use the stone in your hands to round grind and shape what you want. It's not a fast process but it works and the results give good contours. Just make it a project where you take your time.

Before and after pics would be great.
