Proto #2 is finished. It looks like a simple one but it took much longer than expected. Getting all the edges even took forever. The convex edge and tip was fun too but its razor sharp including the thick tip.
In many ways the frame design and ergos are very similar to my Pimpsqueak model with the pinky catch and raised area along the top, back of the frame. There are also some lines stolen from my Maxi Melee fixed blade. The only difference is on the much smaller Pimpsqueak it's a ring finder catch instead of a pinky catch. The geometry of the top part of the frame provides a nice secure feel with plenty of grip retention. I have very big hands so based on the proportions, it should fit well in a normal gloved hand. I always design based on a gloved hand.
