As an admirer of knives I have my own personal preferences regarding them, (not exactly and unbiased critique, I know,) but I just so happen to find this knife to have a sort of utilitarian image; sleek, simplistic, and durability that only a full tang blade offers. Whereas some may look for a shock and awe effect when viewing knives at a collectors standpoint, I value a nice, sturdy piece that doesn't appear to shamble to pieces should one take it off display, and sometimes when one tries to strive for unique design, the knife ends up looking gaudy or just overall unappealing all together. Keep it classic.
On the whole, great work; I enjoy everything you make, it's visionary and it's refreshing to know that the art of blacksmithing is not lost to the 21st century.
What do you think?

Lovin' the old skool spearpoint vibe - still, by far the best, out in the real world where utility over a range of tasks is required! Out in the wild places, you not gonna want to carry round extra lbs of fancy shaped steel - and probably not more than one knife - are you?

In terms of grip, I've always found about 4" length to be sufficient preferably shaped like, for example, Fox Knive's FX-131 M or Fallkniven's F1 or S1 style knives. I know it's a personal choice, but I've always ended up filing off finger guards on knives I've bought as I just can't get on with them!
