    That is a very elegant blade. I'm curious as to what "perfect balance" means in the decription. Where is the balance point on this knife and why is it perfect? It seems to me that a knife that size would have no choice but to be quite blade heavy.

    Nah there's an osmium-enriched tang.



    Hey Mr. Burke, how does the TIG weld do on the bolster? Do you do it before, or after HT?
