This is a continuation of this thread: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=689170 Here's the latest drawing: I went ahead and decided to put in some hook into the blade. I figured out how to grind it and should work for me and my tooling. The one nice thing about this design is that the handle is symmetrical. It will feel the same whether in forward or reverse grip. The intention for this design is to bring some utility into a traditional karambit design. So, there is a swedge behind the tip to strengthen it. There is a slight guard as well as some jimping to feel more like a regular knife.
