In the spirit of the question asked recently about "detail work," I'd like to ask if I may, what is meant by the descriptive phrase "distal taper" (when referring to blade geometry)? I understand the concept of "distal" in general re "distal vs proximal" but I see the phrase "distal taper" used to describe many knife blades, and to be honest I've seen it misspelled quite a few times, which makes me wonder if not everyone entirely understands the idea that is trying to be conveyed. I certainly do not understand, but I'm a shoeless peasant so... Can anyone help me out?
