Jeremy,
The cross-section, of the blade, thins from handle to the tip.

The Bontoc is ground from 5/16" 5160 and has a rapid distal taper towards the point. This makes it very lively in the hand. It has a solid weight to it and and has a perfect neutral balance. I will try and borrow a camera and get a pic. I opted for the micarta handle and black kg blade.
