So I let him use my grinders, it's to small for my hands. Good shape or not?

if it was his first time at the grinder, I'd say great job. Not sure the shape lends itself to anything useful, but who knows.

Good job for first time; as far as shape, not sure what it's going to be used for. The downward pressure is not going to be great. To me, and I'm sure not an expert on knife design, it would be better for slicing, also it's going to be weird making a sheath for it.

Kind of looks like a skinner, handle a little longer, a index finger hole. Like the design for rolling the wrist while skinning.

the sheath was my first thought, but I'm not making it, I can see it being useful but I have huge hands so it doesn't work for me.

The blade looks OK to me but not sure I like that handle. Blade should make a good skinner.

I like the blade profile but the handle looks better suited for ironing.

Double wrap the handle in leather strip and then dip in shellac. Just a wild idea I had.
