use that image as a guide in your app of choice. then create a box, make divisions at points of detail, i.e. notches, and shape the box to fit the image. Bevel the edges to create the, er, bevel on the knife blade. the handle should be pretty straight forward.

I would build 2 splines one matching the outer edge and one matching the inner edge, and then create a surface between them....

try to have vertextes on the inner spline line up with bits of detail on the outer spline.

this means you can collapse it down at any resolution and have a good solid clean model.
