    I like the copper in the pin, very subtle. Nice job on that profile!

    tk59, Here are a few photos of the spine and tip..
    The main grinds are full flats with slight convex added toward the blade edge. bevel angle is aprox 17*


    Thanks again everyone for the comments and looking at my work.

    would be nicer if that spine were a little more tapered

    Maybe. I do think the very tip area needs to get thinner and probably the edge area judging from the size of the bevels.

    Again Thanks for the comments and advise..

    OK, after a little thought and getting a new battery in my digital calipers.. I would like to post some blade measurements.. This should help in determining what changes I can make on this one and future knives of this style and size to make them better cutters.

    I will measure in the following places. Does that sound about right to everyone?
    first the spine above the heel, then half way point of the blade and just behind the tip, aprox 1/4"
    The second set will be same location but halfway down one the blade.
    The last set will be same location measured aprox 2 mm above the cutting edge.


    Spine, 2.56mm 2.44mm 1.02mm
    Midway 1.85mm 1.87mm .090mm
    edge .66mm .65mm .66mm

    I already have to agree with tk59.. the edge is to thick.. I will work on that and may taper the spine more.. any other suggestions?

    For a blade this size, what would be the optimal thickness 2 mm above the cutting edge?

    Thanks
    Randy

    This one went on a diet this afternoon! Now its mean, lean cutting machine! I weighed this when I first posted and it came in at 7.2oz. and now is at 6.7oz. All steel weight.. I dint touch the handle.

    New measurements. are as follows.
    Spine, 2.56mm 2.34mm .83mm
    Midway, 1.63mm 1.43mm .62mm
    Edge, .49mm ..50mm ..48mm

    Thanks again
