I have been working on this pattern for a couple of weeks. It has gone through a few changes since I first finished it. At first it was going to be heavier with a wide flat spine. I played with it a bit and it worked fine but for it's size it was simply too heavy. Back to the grinder! I moved the bevel up to meet the spine for a full flat grind and it still chops fine for it's size but it is now also a better slicer Also weight is reduced a bit. I then added a choil cut similar to my recent recurve to change up the profile a little. Because it is ground out of 1/4in thick 5160 it is hardly just another utility style since it has some real chop to it. Hence the Baby Bolo name It is 11 1/16in overall with a 6 1/2in blade tip to handle. I used natural linen micarta for the scales. The tang is drilled out with five 1/2in holes to make it balance better right at the front of the handle scale. Weight on it(I finally bought a scale) is just a hair over 12 ounces.
