Finished this beast up today. Curly maple and farriers rasp. Sculpted the handle mostly  with files. First time using the ameribrade I got last year, worth every cent. And the first time grinding 4 bevels, unfortunately I scuffed the blade a couple times and didn’t see it till I glued it all up.

 Honestly I didn’t really have any idea of how to shape it any If it. I just ground and filed the bevels of the main portion of the handle and cleaned up the transitions between the head/handle and handle/butt to match with the height of the handle bevels. If that makes any sense..

Dually Noted, I will be sure to tag you in mine when I do my build! I'm going to try a couple different techniques.
