I have a recent Kephart in 1/8 inch stock- 4.5 inch blade, 4.5 inch handle. It was for my wife, who is finding she loves it for slicing and kitchen prep work. I think it is still heavy enough to make a good outdoor blade, and would not really see a benefit to going thinner on the blade. JMO/ YMMV.

I know this is part of the creek with custom knives, but I'd love to see you guys do something entry level like your hawks you've been making in the past year, maybe with a few patterns for choices. May not be possible price wise, but a plain jane handle (or blade and rivets only) with a lower performance steel that would be forgiving on beginning knife sharpeners.
