I used an online design tool to modify these bad boys from a template. The site also has a waterjet cutting service.
The EDC and the thrower are 3.2mm. The tanto is 5mm width. All are 80CRV2.

Tanto is my favorite style blade. How long is that one?

The tanto is for my FIL. He is almost finished with a replica of the last Rambo knife.
The EDC are for more discreet carry & use. A friend of mine is a building inspector. I will be giving one to him so he can handle any rogue cardboard boxes, fish or bipedal gremlins.
The others I wrestled with the design for a long time. One of my brothers is big into Filipino martial arts (and others). For a while I was going to make him a kiridashi type blade. With these he can throw, stick or slice as required.

Thrower ground to .02" with 60 grit. Sanded w/ 120, 320 & 600. I us a 6x36" grinder so the plunge lines are not "perfect" but they are symmetrical based on whether it was ground on the left side or right side of the belt.
I have a few ready for heat treating now for when I build my forge.
