5mm?

Postby VOSGTC » Fri Jan 05, 2018 2:34 am

I see the term “5mm” used often. What is it referring to?

Thickness of backspring/blade...often found on my very favorite pieces lol.
More common 3mm on left and 5mm on right (quick example)

In 11" and 13" (28cm and 33cm) I like the feel of the 5mm blade and back spring pieces. They feel more "robust" to me.
