Default 4"Hunter template thoughts

I know knife and handle shape is very subjective but I'd like some input. I have been struggling with handle size and shape mostly and really like Fiddleback Forge esk designs. I'm going to make some 4" hunters and seem to be settling in on handle around 4.5" long. With the shape in these pictures I can comfortably grip the knife in a standard grip, thumb on spine and reverse grip.







I'm thinking about using 3/16 stock and 80crv2 steel. Any input or ideas would be appreciated.

I opened up CAD today and made some refinements. Please post your thoughts.

3.25" Simple handle





3.5" Hunter





5" Camp / Bushcraft

nice design, I like a little more of a dropped point, but that design you have will work great.
