Well i have this one ground out and almost ready for HT. Stock is just a hair under 5/16, and blade is 2 inches high with a full flat grind. This one is 15 overall with a 10 inch blade and 5 inch handle and man, did this ever take a long time to bevel. The scales will attach with three lanyard tubes to allow multiple tie up positions so that the blade cant get away while chopping. Not sure what the scales will be yet, but i am thinking about possibly trying some horse stall mat on them. This knife is just an experiment, its made to do specific things well, and other things not at all. It is supposed to chop hanging rope, chop 2x4s, take down trees, slice waterbottles and such. It has no tip, and will not be any good at all for skinning, filleting, or any type of fine detail work.
