I forged this guy much thinner than the other blade and it has a distal taper from about 5/32 of and inch to about a 1/16 of an inch on the blade portion.
It's pretty cool to be working with the damascus. Because it is so time consuming to make damascus I have had to take more time forging the blades closer to their final shape and hammering in the bevels to keep waste to a minimum. This has helped me refine my smithing skill and helped on other projects. In the next few weeks look for damascus blades on the knives for sale page.
