It looks nice Joe!
That’s a good idea – to personalize and customize the tool to your choice of look, shape and feel. A small amount of customisation can improve the ergonomics for you and also how you feel about the tool, which may also reflect in what you make with it!
Personally I like the cutout on the bottom of the stanley brand knife as I find my middle finger rests in this naturally with my index finger on top of the blade and gives good control. I guess there’s no reason that a wooden handle couldn’t also be shaped like that if desired though.

I hope you are right. I would have secured it with two rivets. You would be shocked to see, how easy it is to remove thick epoxy layers from old model planes – for example on tubes that secured the wings. Cleaning the tubes on the inside – instead of replacing them – is more work.
Well, this said, gratulations anyway! Your knife looks nice and useful. do you intend to give it some finish, or simply wait for blood, sweat and tears?
