    Does anyone know if HI has made the 18" GRS in the 24-25 ounce weight range? I have a customer who likes
    the style and the large handle but feels he would do better with one that is a bit less weight forward than the
    unused one I offered him which is about 28 ounces and shown on the top of the photo.

    The lightest 18" bonecutter i've been able to reference came in at about 27 oz.
    Normally the 15" and 16" bonecutters come in at about 25 oz.
    The best way to get one would be to inquire with Auntie about a special order.

    My 18" ganga ram from 2008 is 25 ounces (without the sheath), and I love it.

    Personally, I'd like to see more blades in that weight range.

    fearn, thanks for the info. Does yours have the same handle style, thicker than most other models?

    Karda, thanks, I had previously sent an email to Yangdu.

    Huh. That's a very strongly curved BGRS.

    Kevhen, my handle is a little thicker, but it has a more flared butt than the handle you picture, and the midrib is simpler and a bit further back. I'm not sure any of these details matter though.
