I used this method for 30 years. It has been around for thousands of years. First you grind the tool to shape on a stone, grinder or beltsander, then get the face ground to 45-60 degrees on a stone by hand, then use a 1/8 in rod on a stone to do the belly. Maybe not the best, but the cheapest, and I still use it for 90 degree single points.
Sam has the same thing on another thread here.
