    Scimitar

    I an wondering what the typical length and geometry is like for a scimitar? I am interested in width at heel, thickness at heel, grind, taper, whatever info you may have..

    Thanks

    The ones i have used have been between 12-14 inches long and about 3-4mm at heel with very slight taper.

    As far as geometry really can't say
