Get one, work with it is my advice. Next time I see one I'm buyin' it!

The idea of having the weight shifted towards the face is found in a lot of hammers, claw hammers for instance. What makes the Japanese hammers look so cool is they really look weight forward. I have several, and I still think it's the workman not his tools. But as a tool maker, I sure like tools that have any little bit of an advantage to them.
I have about a dozen japanese hammers of various types, and they all seem to have welded construction, except the blacksmith hammers. Has anyone seen one with welded construction?
