Finally found a material that balances perfectly with these big Blades. Got lucky with this. The weight and feel seem to match perfectly with this massive beast. Blade measures just a hair under 9/8ths at its widest point. I was also able to save the original bullseyes. Bone Scales were sealed with CA. Wedge is also Bone. This thing weighs just over 4 ounces. My next heaviest blade is my 8/8 Goldedge, which weighs just over 2.5 Ounces.
