i do forge it from round,
not stock removal.
and the real ones had pretty wide variety.
it's gonna be reproduction though i use a modern steel. there is no change in the basic shape, the dipp will be filed into finite form,the problem with the build is to have enough material left to get a straight blade out of it.
if i use flatter dimensions i would end up with a different symmetry than i want.
btw many historical examples were less wide
as long as i stay in the range of findings and general direction of the order it will be ok.
