Pugiones Information Needed
Patrick just digging around my vast book shelf pulled out the dimensions  for the Velsen dagger 
Blade length . 23.05cm
Max width cross gaurd.  6.3cm
Blade width. 5.7cm
Thickness of blade. 2.3mm
Thickness at rib. 3.8mm
As you can imagine corrosion must play a part in all dimensions and loss of surface material over the years. 2mm as posted from the book, seems to me too thin for a viable blade without a midrib but I am no expert on this  Blush As to the boil welding it is just forge welded but the picture shows the midrib already done before welding, this would not be just a centre core with blade welded to it, then the midrib forged into it or ground out.
