too late I just finished grind down my brand new Knipex plier.
good thing I took 9th grade shop class. totally paying off

I did my just like the photo provided by "powercroco" and actually there very durable no tendency to flex or bend.
The slight curve / arc I find important.

used a drill press and grinding wheel works like a charm. Even a dremel would work.

Beware of too thin pliers, if you don't have a groove in the centre they slip and damage the wire
