Where do you measure the blade thickness?

May 28, 2020

Because all of Carter Cutlery blades have a forged distal taper (thicker in the middle, more thin towards the tip), the blade thickness given is dependent on what part of the blade is measured.

On kitchen knives, we measure the blade thickness at the stamp.

On neck knives and outdoor knives, we measure just in front of the handle.
