Excellent Mike! Top shelf work. Thanks for showing it.

PS--I got a Mike Sweany neck knife in a previous IITH--whoever's name he draws will be in for a treat.

Stormcrow, it's a pewter guard. I wrapped paper around it to the rough shape I wanted and then poured the pewter.

On the blade side I left the guard in a as pored condtion.

Pewter is nifty. This was old key chain fobs and a little babbet to make it a wee bit harder.


Thanks guys.
