Here’s the start. I went back and forth between several different designs. At first I wanted to do a recurve, but everything look “too fantasy” for me or “Rambo-ish”. Then I took the fighter approach, but when I made test blades they all lacked heft. So this is what I’ve settled on.

I snuck in a little shop time and got a start on the bevels. No idea why the quarter is there. For whatever reason I find it much easier to get a good controlled bevel on bigger knives. My usual is small hunters, and I struggle mightily, which is how most of my knives end up as full flat grinds. This one is far from done, but I like where it’s headed.

I like where it's headed also. Gotta love those sinuous curves.
