I have one of your stainless Ultimatums and it is my favorite knife. Although its a bit lighter than the Blazen it replaced, it feels more robust in use. I think it is because the balance is more forward. I really like the balance of the knife and the height and profile of the blade. I have not experienced the "wedging" some of complained about with the convex grind. For me it just works, works, works. You said on a forum you were proud of this knife, and I agree: Very nicely done!
