    That is a great looking design, especially the grip. What thickness is the blade stock, and what's the width of the blade? Thank you.

    This knife was forged on a little giant power hammer from 1/4" stock and finished on the anvil prior to grinding. The blade thickness in front of the handle is .145, the width from spine to edge at the widest part is 1-1/38". The tang and spine where not hardened. Except for the point and the glass breaker which are Rc 61-62. This was designed as a slicer, not a chopper. However, 52100 is tough when differentially heat treated like this blade was.
