Here's my design.
just under 3.5 blade
Really had this in mind for paracord wrap.
Here is my entry--10" total length (4.5" handle, 5.5" blade) with a 1-1/8" wide blade. The handle scales would be canvas micarta and the pins would be stainless, for me, anyway. The handle is contoured in a way that was kind of a mix of inspiration between knives from the Philippines and Scandinavian knives, and I included thumb scallops. There is a small choil that serves two purposes--first, it works as a firesteel scraper, and second it helps you sharpen the blade along its entire length because it gets rid of that gradual slope from the ricasso to the edge that would normally be in that area that is difficult to sharpen anyway. The tip design is the one I drew up quite some time ago and fell in love with--it works well for blind indexing, has a strong shape for use with a baton, and has a fine but sturdy point for both finer cuts and drilling (and stabbing, should the need arise).
I cut out a cardboard template and figured I might as well snap a couple quick in-hand shots--full grip, thumb-supported grip, ice-pick grip and scythe grip:

Here is my entry:
Small multipurpose "3/4 Wharncliffe" Scandi with full length handles.
Thanks to the full scandi grind and the blade shape this will allow for *very* simple resharpening on waterstones.
It still is kind of pointy, yet has enough stock at the tip for responsible batoning. Great as a small bushcraft knife, a carver, a kitchen knife , etc etc.
Hope you like it,
Very Nice. Simple, but would appear to be extremely functional.
Here's my entry.The Tool!(I got the name from Proturist,he once described JK knives as working tools for working tools.Thanks for the inspiration Mack,very fitting IMO.)
Saber grind with or without heat scale left on the flats.(I like it myself)
9 1/2" OAL,W/ 4 1/2" handle & 5" blade.(I went with a 5" blade for a little more room for a baton or extra penetration in a defensive situation.)
Jimping for the thumb.
3) 1/4" pins(brass please)
Exposed tang with a 3/16" lanyard hole.
Divot in tang for striking a fire steel.
7/8" thick handle tapering towards the front to say 5/8" & 1 1/8" high at the butt to 3/4" at the lowest point in the belly.
Good luck everybody,so far I've seen some designs I wouldn't mind having myself so if mine doesn't win I still win,hehe.
And thanks for the chance John.

it's the kind of knife I have always wanted myself, after going through a few outdoor and edc knives in the past.
Hey lightleak. that is similar in idea (but a bit different) to what i sent john for my june custom order. i definitely like it.
i better think of something new quick!
ok guys...i wanted to switch it up a bit. but, with that said....i REALLY want a set of JK Steak Knives! Forgive the "sketchy entry." (Get it!?!?) Yikes. time to get a drink and watch the bruins.
Whoops. i see i made a mistake. the rosewood handle was supposed to say ironwood in the drawing (i would be ok with any dark, dense wood with reddish hues).
