    Does anyone know if Andy makes the Bushfinger in 1/8"? I love my BF but would like one that is more thin.

    Convex or scandi? I have a scandi in 1/8".

    I had a scandi one that was 1/8th. Perfect thickness for that model.

    Honestly, I have never used a scandi grind, so, I have no idea what the pro's and cons are.

    They bite REALLY deep into wood. That is the only pro. I had never used a scandi grind either and I think im going to stick with FFG or saber.

    I have only made a few 1/8" thick or thinner Bushfingers in convex. Its not a small feat to do a good looking convex on 1/8" thick steel that is 1.3" wide. You can do the math on the included angles in those triangles. Its something like making a cannon shot at 300 yards though. There are a lot of 1/8" and 3/32" thick Bushfingers done in Scandi. And, there are a couple coming out this week.

    Could it not be a full flat grind?
