    Welcome! Looked around a little to see if I could find some of your work using your username as a search, couldn’t find anything. As far as advice goes, most guys here are pretty qualified to give you pointers just because they use them almost everyday. Geometry, ergonomics; aesthetics, in my opinion take largely a back seat to usability.

    Some pictures would be helpful. One from the end of the toe to see a cross section profile of the spine and edge. A shot from the top with the razor closed and another open in the stropping position to make sure the scales work properly, and a couple of profile pics. If there are any major issues we can help you sort them with those pics. Get the geometry sorted and then work on smaller things like pivot to spine height relationship, tang profile shape, etc...

    After making straight razors for 10 years you have to wonder why he needed to ask the question in the first place.
