    What stock thickness would these be at their thickest point Cal? I know there will be a distal taper the whole way but im curious on starting thickness. I am planning a few kitchen knives and not sure on how thick to start.

    The steel comes off of the surface grinder at 0.1000 which is close to 3/32 which is 0.094
    I would never want to make a kitchen knife any thicker, I have made a few out of 1/8 material and they are to heavy and
    just do not perform like a thinner knife.

    thanks for the heads up Cal, I was planning to start with 3/32 so at least i was in the ball park.
