    Your tang looks angled down too much IMO. It'd make the handle be lower at the butt end than the ferrule end, unless you drill a crooked tang slot into the handle. If anything, I'd angle the tang a tiny bit up relative to the rest of the knife.

    Edit: I take that back. I personally would make the center line of the tang parallel to the spine of the knife like Mike did on his.

    Good eye. I agree on getting the center line parallel with the spine (which means angling it up a bit). Should make things a bit easier down the road.
