    I wasn't really paying attention earlier. By rounded western, I thought you meant your latest western style. Your latest style is the one I'd go with, just modified slightly.

    I will make an oversize coca-cola shape, aiming for a good grip.

    I am finishing up my first production (up to this point, all were prototypes) scimitar. Would like to make a video of quick performance demonstration. What can I cut that is not meat - sorry don't do many primal and sub-primal cuts in the shop, to approximate a scimitar performance?

    The geometry is S grind, the blade is stiff on the spine, but thin below, about 13" long on the edge, with oversize western handle. Thickness above the edge is comparable to old US-made pro scimitars. The profile is 1:1 copy of the old scimitar I have. 52100 with 62.5-63RC hardness, about .007-.010 at the edge.

    I am way behind my work to send my finished blades for testing and video at the moment, so this knife will go directly to the knife lottery winner - daveb, but before I send out, I would like to make a quick demo.
