    Just finished this Chopper up today :) Had to let the bluing set up over night. Still a large knife but a little smaller than most of my recent Bowies/Choppers. I'm really digging it! I used 1/4in 5160 and some old reddish Pakkawood for scales. OA it is 13 7/8in with a 9in blade tip to handle. Weight is a comfortable 17oz. Big enough for cutting and chopping but it won't drag my pants down :D I ground in an unsharpened false edge to reduce the forward weight to suit my desired balance.
