First, plot out the blade and handle shape on graph paper. Draw it to actual-size.  When people see a knife, the first thing they see is the blade. Therefore, it should set the theme for the knife, and make the knife look great. Then transfer it to mate board, cut it out using a utility knife and hold it in your hand to see if it feels right; if not back to the drawing board.  This may take a few tries until you are satisfied.
