    +1 on the thickness. The added weight helps too when you're doing large cuts.

    Thicker at the edge or the spine?

    So far I have referred to thickness on the edge only.

    Both, in relation to each other of course.

    How fine an edge do you finish your scimitars? About 3-5K or higher?

    There is need for it in butchery. I'm thrilled to hear about the 8in as well. I'm glad to see you got this going Marko. The profile looks great. I think the thin behind the edge and sturdy spine is a great idea. Scimitars are not really supposed to come in contact with bones. They are more for portioning boneless sub primals. I am very excited.

    Keep mine pretty toothy. 1200 bester, and then strop on whatever paper is around, no steel.
