Has anyone tried using the Blunt SS 29er rim with gravel-width tires (40c)?  I use these rims on my MTB, and they're very durable for the weight.  I'm just not sure if they'd be too wide for a 40c tire, expecially for tubeless applications.

I use them with 38c tires, but I'm using tubes.

I'd have zero qualms about running a 40c. With a 30mm rim, my opinion is the sweet spot is 37c+. I wouldn't try it setup tubeless with a non-tubeless tire, as the rim has pretty tight sizing tolerances, but with a good quality tubeless tire I don't foresee any issues. 

Feel free to email me at seely@velocityusa.com if you have any other questions!

Yup, I tried it: WTB Nano 40 on the Blunt SS. I had them pop off the rim in corners and burp repeatedly. Despite hurting myself pretty badly, I kept running them because I wanted it to work, It was super fast and felt awesome. I'm back to tubes now but I have just hit send on some ultra light weight tubes. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TRYING THEM TUBELESS WITH 40c TIRES. After trying the experiment I would agree with manufactures recommendation that says- right on the tire: to not run tubeless on rims wider than 26

 For the last two days Guitar Ted's blog has excellent information on tubeless tire and rim compatibility. It's a must read for those contemplating tubeless. http://g-tedproductions.blogspot.com/

I've been running Gravelking 40 tubeless on Blunt SS and works great so far - 300 miles or so.  I love the volume I get on this combo.
