    Hey Marco, depends on the knife but yes most of them. The heavy bladed designs are tuff but who is to say that I cant hide a piece of heavy metal inside the handle.

    That is basically what I meant. Thicker, taller and longer hidden tang, just not a full tang. I too like hidden tangs for the same reasons (wood movement) outlined above. We have a lot of educating public to do, it seems.

    Ive seen A particular Chef knife made many years ago by Jimmy Lile that had addable and removable weights that were hidden under the screw in but cap. Was made for the Chef to then Gov Clinton.

    Just a thought?

    Cool idea...but I have a pretty good idea where I like my balance points. When having a custom knife made, I just tell the maker what I prefer. Don't see why I would want to change it after I had it right or the maker made to how I specified.
