Dang man, you really thinned it down, but did you mean 0.049 at the edge?
Those are some more exciting dimensions depending on exactly where you're taking them.
Dave, Nope, I mean .49mm best I can tell with digital calipers. Im getting a average thickness of .50mm along the whole length of the blade above the bevel.
tk59. Figured these numbers would be more to your liking..
I measured the blade like this. first set of numbers are at the spine, second set is measures near halfway point on the blade.. and last set is 1.5 to 2 mm above the cutting edge.
I measured in 3 spots for each area. first above the heel. then midway point of the blade/length and last about 1/4" behind the tip
I plan on adding new pics today. just need to do a bit more finish work to the blade faces.
This knife is a different monster now! Its just screaming sharp and begin to cut somthing! Its much lighter and the balance point is now right about at the middle of the HHH...
Thanks again guys.
A few pics..
Looks good! So was this an experimental project or an order for a customer?

Johnny, This one is a experimental test knife to test out the new butchcarta.. (well "new" to me at least) and second to test out the kiritsuke blade profile...
Thanks you sir.
