ocd i like that , i like it mate take your time on this one it could be a show stopper , gret shape you should draw round it keep it as a stencil , i might be able to get you some laser cut one day . even if not you can refine it over the years and it will be your own knife to your design .

the file work looks great to well done .

no mate its aby-b's design that one !
got a good look to it i reckon .

as for handle material .................... got a modern look with a clasic line , brass bolsters and pummel with a ivory alternative micarta in the midle , would look realy classy maybe a 1mm brass liner to bring out the file work and contrast the filler ?

Yes its a good type blade, and as Midnight says, Ivory linnen micarta would set it off great. A bit like this

Like the look of that Gin. What is the micarta like to work with ie. cutting and sanding/finishing?
