    If the balance on the knife is in question put the handle together without glueing it in place and check the balance, if its to tip heavy you can make small holes on the inside of the handle plates and put lead weights in it where they wont show once assembled or thin them bdown and add mettal between the plates and the tang. If its to handle heavy then like Ron has dose a lot you can drill holes in the tand and if wanted make small hollows in the plates. A brass butt knob can also be added if the balance is to far off to the tip. With a little thought and creativity ANY knife can be nicely balanced to whatever point you want, Ive seen a 7 foot great sword with a 1 foot handle that was perfectly ballanced at the hilt.

    A chainsaw file, a triangular file and about 45 minutes of work for that, is all.
