You guys :)
Erdbeereis, I think the profile is good, but I'd change the angle of the heel and raise the tip just a little bit. Something like this:

I think I'll leave this one as it is for now as it would be to much work to file all of the steel off. I will, however, consider your advice for my next one. :)

Here's a rather large update...
