    I like the shape of the handles. They look like they are easy to manipulate. Although I think I would prefer less space between the handle and agi.

    I think it may just mimic the feel of a wa handle in-hand. I like it.

    I'm on the same page with Scott on that. I was trying to go for more of a workhorse type knife, so I skeletonized the whole tang and lengthened that distance just slightly. I really love the balance I got, but I would move the handle just slightly closer.

    It's a fairly light knife, about ~200g, but the balance is pretty far forward, which is what I aimed for.

    I have a couple Chroma knives that have a tapered flat tail, the only thing I like about them. I use my pinky and ring finger a lot.

    The Chroma was actually one point of inspiration I took! There were a bunch of random things that came together to create that handle design - I'd be lying if I said I actually planned it all out though.

    Here is the trifecta in its whole.
