Profiled and ground this blade Friday for an order. Just need to drill the pin holes and do a little file work, change the shape of the tang a little and it will be ready for heat treat. Right at 12 3/4" overall.

I didn't realize that was damascus. That is going to be very cool. I'm tuned in.

That top one looks good too. I really like the profiles you come up with. You might should make a template of that one for future reference cool

Hetman, I won't speak for Mr Conner's customer but I have one that Mr Potts made from a farriers rasp and it is a brush clearing SOB. It's just shy of 1/4" thick, heavy and shaving sharp.
