I ve yet to try a pig sticker, however I do have two of the narexes. Even the smaller ones are ~7/16 in cross section about an inch from the ferrule/bolster. They are plenty heavy duty and well made. Of course the handles aren t the prettiest or ovular in cross section, but I chop mortises pretty often in hard and soft woods and they perform admirably. Especially for $8 a piece. That said I d love to have some pig stickers just for the cool factor ;).

Wally,

I hadn’t thought about measuring but the 1/2” pig sticker is 20mm (about 7/8”) deep at that point. It’s more than the cool factor, they work better.
