guys any of my knives can be had in either 3/16" or 1/4" thickness, depending on your anticipated use. In GENERAL, thinner for better cutting performance, thicker for prybar performance. that is over simplified, but you get the point.
Thanks for the positive feedback. As soon as I get time to make a sheath for the Spade, I will start carrying at work and see if it needs any tweaks. As of now it seems to fit the bill of why I made it the way I did.
nyeti, you can have #2 Spade, this one stays at home for now.
