Post here for design critique.

I would have given it more of a drop point , to closer match that gentle curve of the antler. Other than that ,I wouldn't change anything.
Thank you! I just received a request to make a similar knife so I’ll incorporate your suggestion in the template.

I posted in another thread that I wrestle with handle to blade proportions. I stumbled across this in David Boye's "Step by step knifemaking":
He's got about 20 pictures like this for cleavers, bread knives, paring knives and utility knives too.

I used the pattern of drawing C to help me re-make this handle. This is a blade design I'm experimenting with. Please critique the match -up.

Measuring from the front of the guard forward and back:
the blade is 4 1/4" inches - handle landed at about 4 3/4"
