Either OP wants to know how much they’re paying per pound of actual meat, or they’re trying to figure out the nutrition for a serving size that includes the bone. Those are my best guesses.

Well, tomahawks are generally vastly overpriced ime. Easiest thing to do is just weight the bone after you cook the steak. It’s not really a set ratio. Some ribeyes are bigger than other. Fatter cow, more marbling, bigger cross section of meat, but the bone probably isn’t any bigger. I really don’t think here’s a hard and fast number for this.

Generally speaking, it’s about 4oz of bone on a KC strip, but I couldn’t tell you how much a tomahawk rib bone weighs usually as I can’t remember the last time I worked with them.

I got something-It honestly depends on the source of meat (size of the animal) and the butcher who cuts the meat. Most of the exposed “meatless” bone is about 8-inches in length with anywhere from 24 to 30 ounces of actual meat.
