    Assuming the blade is not full flat or an extreme hollow grind and you have good flat spine; it could be the vise. That’s exactly how I first noticed that I got one of the vises with a bad heat treatment. The longer I used it worse it got.

    Hello Alva, I think I might be able to help. Try adding a piece of foam tape to the top of each clamp, this will help stabilize the blade. Also use less force (side to side) when using your stones. Let the stones do the work. Hope this helps…… Bill
