A true point and go "laser" grind combined with a fast profile. Plus cryo treated O1 @ Rc60-61 is tough yet easy to sharpen, you have the best of everything here.
The wa octagonal handle is made from figured maple and paired with spalted sycamore on both ends. The maple has been "burnt" and stained to add some character, sort of a used look, that should go well with the carbon steel blade as it patinas over time. The wood used in this handle has been stabilized AND sealed with a varnish/oil finish.
