Still well balanced dispite the weight of the titanium. Silky wood and c-tek are very light so it helped balance out.

Purplish at 25volts. The females in the kitchen loved this one

OverAnodized at 95Volts. I had to sand off this color and start over. Eventually settled at 45Volts

I thought is was too much until I had it delivered. This is an amazing knife and ever better handle. This knife is extremely functional and even more fun to look at. I find myself cutting more stuff just because it's fun. The handle is nice and long and thick almost like using a mini sword on my cutting board, just the way it should be. I can not say enough about this handle and all the ones Matt has made for me (ask him about the carbon fiber and c teck he offers, unidirectional and others). These are so much fun and add a deeper dimension to great knifes. Thank you Matt!!!
