How comfortable is that handle when actually using the knife?

i wish they'd sell that blade with a stick tang, as a kit.

that handle is not the product of meticulous planning and experience IMHO. - for weight alone.

Some people bring a knife to a gunfight and win.

Some people bring swim fins to the knife fight, watch the other idiots kill each other, then take their stuff and swim happily out of zombie range.

How well does it stay in your hand while cutting.  Does you hand get tired or cramp up because you have to keep a tighter grip while using it.  How well does it work while wearing gloves.  Is it slippery when wet with water or blood.  Does it cause a blister if you have to chop with it.  Those type of questions.

reverse grip edge out would work in emergency situations if need be good point.

decent grind bites in handle would possible benefit from modding tennis wrap etc.

can't shake out  [IMG]

good point and grind

not really a good chopper for  the weight with a lot of weight in handle

snap cuts good point

How about whittling, like feathering a stick, putting a point on a stake or a spear?  Blisters or cramps?

Yep.

A lot of the one piece knives I have owned or handled, the one piece grip is usually too thin or narrow to be comfortable for using for long periods.  But it has to be on the small side to keep weight down.
