Just wondering where blade length is measured from on a knife. Is it the actual sharpened area of the blade or is it the actual metal length from tip end to hinge end.
Greater structural strength, superior edge geometry, ease of use (try caping with a double edged knife), etc.RSSZ said:Although I never could understand why the heck someone would want a blade that is half sharp.
QK,QKShooter said:Is the way specific Blade Length is legally measured standard nationwide...or does the measuring criteria differ from State to State?
In other words...could the same knife be considered to have a longer blade in one State than another?
My best guess is that at whatever distance down from the point...the blade would STOP penetrating ~ would be the actual length of the blade.
That's always bothered me as well. A revolver bbl. is measured from forcing cone to muzzle, IIRC, which is closer but not truly the distance traveled by the bullet.P95Carry said:Strikes me the key aspect is ''effective'' blade length - which would be tip to handle grip - at least that seems the logical approach.
That said - look at barrel measurements for semi's - it includes chamber!! That for me is not an accurate representation - when from my POV, the true length, is length travelled by bullet!!!
