I had the same problem a few weeks back with similar gear and spec. To get more threat, you need more DPS. Try this spec:

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Norgannon&n=Genkk)

Rotataion: IT, BS, BS, OB, OB. FS or RS for RP dump.

What type of glyphs are you using atm?? i have roughly the same build as you with just a tad better gear and usualy pulling about 5k tps or more. Have no threat issues at all... Switched from blood tank couse i had threat issues, now its a struggle not to overaggro the MT or such.

I I would replace OB with HB whenever cooldowns allow it. Also I would open IT, HB, PS, BS, BS. I know that this means that you don't have bladed armor right of the start but its really nothing the healers can't handle for a few seconds. After how many times is the average boss gonna hit you in 3 seconds.

true true. although i like to use HB just because in a raid i have a lot of AP which increased your hb by .15% i beleve i may be wrong. but for my weapon i just got the 2h axe of 10man kel.

Bladed Armor is a passive talent that increases your attack power by how much armor you have.

I believe you meant Blade Barrier.

Uhm, if your problem is threat, why aren't you enchanting for threat? Armsman is THE tanking enchant for a DK.

Finally, you are jumping from doing heroics, to tanking heroic naxx. One could safely assume you're tanking heroic naxx with heroic naxx geared DPS? If that is the case, you jumped too high. Also, you can easily remove you're 2/2 Chill of the Grave, and put them in Two-Handed Weapon Specialization. As a tank, you generally have more then enough RP without the RP adding talents.

I use DND, IT, Pest, HB for AOE pulls. I will use IT, HB for quick ranged threat on adds, etc. When AOEs warrant HB has priority.

But I get better single target TBS, DPS, and RP from OB. No 5s cooldown...
