Setting up the layout lines for a distal taper on a full tang. I set the carbide scribe with a dial indicator to the width of the blade material. Setting a allen wrench under the blade to use as a pivot point to the apex of the intended tapers, hold the handle down and scribe around the blade. Rock the blade down and repeat it for the handle end. I used a allen wrench that would be the final width of heat treatment it worked out better than I expected lol. I hope this helps someone trying distal tapers for the first time.

I forgot to add that a scribe line is still needed to define the edge quench thickness.

Thank you for the tip!  I was trying to figure out a method to do exactly this, as I am working on my first tapered tang and distal tapering blade on a bowie.
