What could be done is drill out the tang a bit more to reduce the amount of metal in the grip area. I'm not sure if G10 is lighter than the Pakkawood that is on the handle currently, but I personally hate G10 handles. They feel way too hard in the hand for me and I don't like working the material. Give me Micarta, Stabilized woods or Ironwood, cocobolo, something like that, or the Laminates I make. Wood may be the lightests, especially if it's not stabilized, but it would need to be kept on top of maintenance wise, waxing it, etc.

Oh yeah, these 4 should be at Marks on Monday! There was a bit of a scare; I tracked the package and saw there was an Exception due to a train derailment!!! But it looks like the train derailed before my knives got shipped, so hopefully they made it in one piece!!
