    This is 1/2 concavity. I did not weigh by weight, I cannot say for sure. I'm guessing around 150 grams +.

    Nice, that's hefty.
    Sorry, I meant the thickness (толщина), not the grind. For more common sizes they usually keep 1 to 4 thickness to width ratio, and I always wondered if it was still true for such behemoths as yours here. Is it 3/8 of an inch thick or less?

    Yes, the ratio of 1: 4 is necessarily preserved, but there are small nuances, this is the shape or design of a straight razor and some more nuances. With this straight razor shape, the size will be slightly less than 3/8.
