    THANK YOU BOSSMAN!!!! That has brought the BB13 right down to the PERFECT thickness, from my experience with the material I chop. I had been second guessing my order of the CG ever since I got dinged, because I had agonized over which to order; the CG seemed too thick, and the BG too thin. Oh how I wished the CG had come in .22" thickness. And BOOM! There it is! Thank you so much, and a very Merry Christmas to you sir!


    EDITED TO ADD: The attention to balance is one of the things that has impressed me to the point of shock. It seems that every blade I have gotten I have been surprised at how balanced it is. This was particularly true of the TG-P. With its thickness, and already having a BGTG, I was expecting it to balance like a hatchet. But lo and behold, it comes in, and the balance feels the same at the BGTG to me, just with an extra 4"-ish of blade length. Just fantastic attention to balance in all the blades. You just don't see that often anywhere else, or ever. In my experience.

    So is this something I could consider Double Cut Combat Grade? Like DCBB but without the Bead Blast?

    I guess I'm the only one here that isn't excited about the thinner blade, .25" thick is perfect for a 13" chopper IMO. I'm not going to cancel my order because its still going to be an good chopper, but I'd rather have a .25" thick blade like I originally ordered.

    You're not alone. I'm a fan of big blades...the bigger the better. The reason I bought the B13 was because I wanted something thicker than my 1311. Sure, the B13 will still beat the 1311 in thickness, but I really wanted 1/4". Oh well, you can't have your cake and eat it too.

    I would prefer .25 or thicker as well, but I will still be happy to own one. A chopper this long needs the thickness to keep it true during extreme use.

    Hell when we first started talking about the B13 I wanted it thin like a 1311. This makes me happy.
