Balance is right at my touch mark :)

Experiment over, this is the last of my more beefy blades i'll forge.
Maple Handle that has been charred and dyed with a copper ferrule. Copper has been patinated with a rustic version of a rokusho finish to match the more rustic feel of the knife. Honestly "shabby sheek" comes to mind :)
I attempted to leave more niku or "meat" in the first 1/3 of the knife and then thinned her out quite a bit for the ladder 2/3rds :)
She's reasonably sharp, but i'm sure most of you can put a better edge on her than I can still :)
