    Thanks! The balance is about 1.25" in front of the heel. I kind of like a blade heavy knife, so it's working out. The only quirk, is that I keep trying to reach back further when I'm trying to clean it, or when I first go to grab it. Once I settle in to it, it feels pretty good. It's weighing in at about 162g.

    I always appreciate the kind words! I appreciate the criticisms as well after I beat my head against a wall. Seems to always be something to improve on, but I might get bored if there wasn't :).
