Yes weight reduction and giving a good key for the epoxy glue.

If I had a knife tang which didn’t need weight reduction would knurling it be enough for the epoxy to grab onto you think ?😳

If you have pins right trough i don't think  you would need any additional aid for the glue...... he probably drilled holes because he could and liked the look of them!😄 If you had the ability to knurl it it wouldn't hurt but not necessary.

Yes just for the appearance. He did put clay on when heat treating to get a differential temper although it has no effect to the appearance as it is.

If it was etched in acid you would see a Hamon line where the hard and softer steel meet.
