Mainly from what I can tell it needs to be beveled in much more, to about the middle line of the blade, this will give you lighter weight and better cutting ability, what you have now looks like a long wedge that would have to push a lot of material out of the way to cut anything. You can go for a double bevel and have the main bevel coming back to the center or further, and then do something like a 30 degree angle from the center for the cutting edge if you just wanted, just about a millimeter or 2 wide otherwise you lose the benefit of reducing the amount of material around the cutting edge. Also is this just a mild steel block ground down, or did you do a heat treat on it?
Other than that you've made a knife, which is more than I have done in my 2 years of R&D on knifemaking techniques and composite fabrication.

Thought on it: Put it in a box with my address on it and bring it to the post office. That will take care of any problems it could cause you
