    Yep, this one will finish right around .320. 15 1/8" OAL with a 10" blade. Bob off the 1/8" from either the tip or butt and it would be competition worthy ;)

    Wow Ban the proportions and clean lines of this knife are amazing!
    It would also be incredible made from .22 M390 with a tapered tang. Super light and brutally quick. Brilliant work mate!

    I am not so sure that M390 would make a good chopper but I know that it would be one expensive chunk of steel ;). If I were to chose a stainless chopper then I would most probably chose Elmax or S35vn.

    Actually, I think a .20 version of this chopper in 3v would be pretty darn ideal. Tough, light, and fast ;)
