The Songbird is designed around a mass-at-balance and mass-at-center concept, with a symmetric mass distribution. This means that the bulk of the weight is in the middle, while the handle and blade are equally light. The goal of the mass-at-balance concept is inherent stability and resistance to rotation. This concept is very different than the norm, and the Songbird will require a technique adjustment for those who are accustomed to a handle-heavy knife. The design goal was to make something unique – it is intended for those who already have the basics of no-spin down, and are up to the challenge of breaking out of their comfort zone regarding knife feel.
