It remains light in the hand but the balance point is ever so slightly blade forward. As a result, it is all downhill with this knife - free and easy push-cutting and chopping all day long.
As a very thin knife, it handles soft produce with ease. I was surprised to find it still worked well with thick carrots and cabbage as well (although less authoritative than a heftier knife). Pick it up and put it down. Repeat. This knife won't tire out and neither will you because it is so light in the hand.
One note: if you are looking to rock, this may not be your knife. There is little to no belly, so in order to mince herbs, the motion feels a bit more exaggerated. But for chopping and push-cutting, it would be hard to find something better than this laser.
