The heavily beveled front and back ends of the handle mostly, the wood blowout around the front and rear pin holes, and I radiused the front of the scales too much.
It’s very good that you recognize these now make the necessary changes.
Try starting with thicker scales so if you do run into blowout again there is enough material there to grind/sand down past it.
Take care to remove these scales, trace them out and make changes on paper. Make a template if you want but have a reference for where you want to end up.
Keep after it.
