DIY: Ganzo F7551 Cleaver blade mod

PLANNING
Ganzo F7551 Cleaver blade mod
I'm planning to mod the blade of my Ganzo F7551.

You can buy the F7551
Aliexpress: ***HERE***
GearBest: ***HERE***

Which blade shape do you prefer? A, B or C?
"B" would be the simpliest with clean lines but I also want a more pointy blade tip.
At the moment I'm leaning towards the "A" version.  

Suggestions are welcome! :)
I'll acid etch then stone wash the blade after the regrind.

STAGE_1
I took the plunge and I went for version "A".
I started with an angle grinder:

Belt sander:

This was my best effort at the blade spine

I managed to smooth the blade spine:

What do you think?
I'm still planning to stone wash / acid wash it in stage 2.
I have to figure out what sort of acid I should use for a dark / black finish.
