Default Nessmuk Knife Design - WIP

What do you like to see in a Nessmuk knife design? Steel, bevel, handle material, finish, dimensions...? I am considering making a prototype. I have my ideas, what are yours?

I have always liked the design. What blade length are you thinking? 4 to 5 inches makes a nice utility/hunter in my opinion.

I am thinking of 9 - 9.5 OAL with ~equal parts handle and blade.

Thanks for the feedback. 1/8" 01 with a scandi bevel is what I am thinking

Nessmuk PROTOTYPE:

1095, 9.75 OAL, 5 x 2 x 1/8" blade, 4.75" handle. I will heat treat this one later today. I will probably put a parkerized finish on this one along with some G10. Corby, Loveless or stainless socket flathead bolts?




Any other ideas for this one?
