      After a night of sitting, un-clamp it and get a feel for your handle.  you may just want to round it out and leave it as is!  For mine, I took the handle to the belt sander and made myself some finger slots, then clamped the blade into the vice and rounded the edges with a rasp.  The sky is the limit here!  After you have obtained your final look, you can sand it down so its smooth with 180 grit.
