    In this picture, it looks like the tang is thicker at the spine than blade-side... looks too significant to be a trick of perspective.

    I was wondering how hard It would be to rehandle. It's tapered from spine to bottom, luckily not distal tapered.

    One Japanese company (Nenox?) has a tapered tang from front to back and top to bottom.
