Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! 1/16" aeb-l, 0.003" before sharpening, 10dps. Zebrano handle with gaboon ebony bolster. I used a 1/32" black g-10 face for the bolster and cut the guard slot with a slitting saw. Very clean fitup this way.

I'm finding people like my heat treat and geometry, but would like a lower cost access point. I do a more basic finish, and less expensive materials for handles and furniture. Usually I use synthetic handles, but this fellow is a good friend who made me some awesome tongs.
