The fit and finish are pretty good for a 3rd knife.

If you drop the tang down a bit after the ricasso area, you can set it up so that your wrap is level with the spine of the blade.  That, to my eye at least, would look a bit better.

Treat yourself to some nicer material for your next one.  I won't jump on the rail spike band-wagon, but it certainly looks like you will make good use of some nicer steel, and I bet you'll like the feel and performance better once you get rid of the heavy spike head at the pommel.
