    I cut out a design for a short machete and I need some opinions on the design.

    Specs:

    Steel: 15n20

    Over all length: 14.5"

    Blade length:10"

    Handle length: 4.5"

    Blade width: 1.5"

    Grip width: 1"

    Thickness: 1/16"

    What is a good hardness to shoot for during the HT? I was thinking somewhere around 56-57 to get a good balence. Do you think 58 would be pushing it for a machete this thin?

    Thanks for helping,
    Kevin
