    When the late, great John White, MS made my Persian in 2011 he used a flat grind and like all of John's work it came out great.

    I’ve done recurves with flat grinds. It doesn’t have to be hollow.

    Wow, love the dagger!! That's good to hear flat grind is an option, was a little concerned about thin weak edges on the hollow grind.

    Really appreciate the help. Thanks

    This ricasso is just over 1/4" thick.

    Here is a view that shows the ricasso.
