Just got the big one and it handles really well. Fairly heavy forward which is almost unavoidable in a blade of this length but you can feel the momentum when you swing it. Also really like the spur!

Bringing this thread back. Got mine for Christmas from the wife! It's a hefty SOB. Haven't chopped anything with it yet but there's always tomorrow.

Feels good in the hand, but the real test will be with some work and time on the wood. It's definitely going to need gloves for any prolonged chopping.

That looks like mine! You'll love it. It's too heavy for machete tasks but just right for chopping.

The steel they use WILL discolor/rust quickly if not maintained, but I prefer the rust blued look anyway. Mine now looks like the peasant tool it was modeled after.

I also contoured the back grip "ring hump" a little. The full tang created a hot spot, at least on my hands. I wish I also had a rat tail to compare it to.
