    Cool idea! How far into the dough-stuff did you stick 'em? Maybe a ruler would be nice to get some perspective.

    I sunk them 2 inches from the handle.

    Nice, Salty!

    Is it me, or does the last Carter seem concave on the right side about starting about 2/3 down the blade?

    Definitely the best way to photograph a blade's geometry.

    Yes. That's a large bevel ground into the blade. Hammer finished above that.
