Some photos of the blades with the guards on:
This is the one that will have the stacked leather washers and cherry:
My friends knife:
That curved piece of metal with angled point is something I use to scrape the JB weld off the blade and guard.. it's brass so it doesn't scratch the steel.
My son and I were down cutting the spacers for the leather/cherry handled knife earlier.
The knife for my friend is on hold until I get one more part in.
