    Wow, what a beautiful beast of a knife!
    Super nice setup.

    Curious about the balance of hollow handled knives... (Never had the chance to handle one yet) Are the a bit tail heavy compared to 'full tang' knives? Does that change with bigger blades like this one? Or are they about the same in how the are balanced?

    Thank you very much!

    To your question about balance, well, within reason you can do it about however you like. This model is a little blade heavy since it is designed to chop well. Pictured below is one that I made to be a "light chopper," so I brought the balance back closer to the guard.

    My Mother also changed my diapers. Are you prepared to prove your loyalty to the family?
