I wanted to do a test knife to see how to do everything on a big one i am doing. Here are the dimensions.
Blade: 1095 steel, differentially heat treated and polished. Edge length, 8 inches.
Spine thickness: Heel, 4.4mm, halfway, 3.3mm 4mm behind tip is .37mm. Height is 34.8mm

Very nice knife! Please excuse the newbie question, but what is a knife of this shape generally used for?

Scimitar is usually used to break down large cuts of meat.

Thanks, Mike! I appreciate you taking the time to answer... I have seen several (cool) examples on this forum, but always wondered what tasks best suit this knife.
