monkeyboy, the Fowler is mint/unused. I have a smaller Fowler that I use all the time, or else I wouldn't let this one go.
The width of the blade at the guard, from spine to bottom is 1/4". Here's another picture of the knife in my hand.....Hope this helps. The handle is excellent. Ed, if this is not what you're asking, e-mail me for more pictures and info.
