Elder Futhark - concerning smaller karambits, I concur. I EDC an Emerson Combat Karambit, but really prefer minimalistic ones. I keep thinking I'll get another Barry Dawson one of these days, but I haven't made it a big priority due to some pretty severe health issues in my immediate family lately. You're not missing anything by not spinning it - spinning is possibly the least useful and most insanely dangerous thing you can do with a karambit. I have seen it done properly by an extremely gifted teacher, but I don't do it myself - my mechanics and control aren't nearly that good yet. I am very interested in following the continuing evolution of your karambit design!
