Nicely done! I like it.
One small comment at the ricasso. A qtip with acetone is really good at getting the epoxy removed that is squeezed out. I also learned to keep watching for more epoxy getting squeezed out, since it expands a little while curing.
Have you made a sheath yet? Working with leather is really fun!

get a 3/16 brass rod and sharpen to a chisel. it will remove epoxy and not scratch your blade.
