Specs are 12" overall, 6" cutting edge, 1/4" ricasso, 5 3/4" handle. 1/4" thick, 2" at the widest part on the blade.
March will be here before you know it Brett. Can't believe it's August already. :eek:

These chop very well. Just about as good as a hatchet. It has to do with it having a wide blade. It chops as good or better then an 8" Tusker.

Yes, due to the weight and width of the blade. Now a 1/4" thick by 1 3/4" wide Big BoarTusker will chop just as well as these.

Great looking knife!

Appears to be perfect for use in the back country! The size would allow it to preform double duty: small chores around camp and some chopping detail, as need. When an ax is not available...

WST would be a great asset to someones kit.

The handle profile looks great and I love the overall dimensions.

These things are a bear to profile. It's takes three 36 grit belts to do one. :eek:

And I bet you're not using a 1X30. :D

I hate grinding steel. I'd probably pick up a plasma cutter before I hogged off all that steel on a belt sander. But I'm impatient...so.
