    Just as I suspected, about an inch up to where it doesn't look like a literal wedge, thanks!

    I did mine thinner than that too, but it's a good starting point, especially if he thinks he has 2 hours of coarse work left, after seeing it!

    Is protecting the hollow sections in the blade a concern? (I believe on the faces of the blade which would normally be flat, there is a large diameter hollow made with a sen, although I'm not 100% sure if it exists or not).
