- no tape on the top and bottom bevels.

This rounds/squares up the handle a bit. It also slightly increases grip size. I use a leather grip + Supergrap overgrip and I can still feel the bevels just fine with that setup. Hope this helps.

Edit
Since I use a 1hbh I only tape half of the handle since I don't touch the upper half, and hence don't need to modify it. This keeps the added weight to a minimum as well. It's not really noticeable.

Awesome, thanks Gee + Od1n for the tips on tape. will give that a try. probably easier than me fiddling with balsa.
