This is my latest piece- a basic hunting knife.

3/16" 1095 8.25" OL
Brass Guard and 1/4" brass pins and tube
Hollow grind finished with a Scotchbrite belt (red), and flats sanded bright.
Black handle liners (can't really see them in the photo)
Imistag handle finished to 600 grit, then buffed to add some black color in the pores, and to give it a sheen.

The local sportsman's club/Lions Club asked me to donate a blade for their fall auction, and this may be it.

What do you think- fine as is or something I could differently next time?

I think it looks great! As well I know that is an excellent shape for use. I'm sure you could use almost any scales and it would still look great. Frank
