    Looking good, John!
    Is the dimple on the bottom of the bronze guard a trade secret?:D

    That's patented and known as a deliberate dimpular demarcation delineation dot, aka a "5D". Oh wait.... nope, it's just a place I whacked it so I could eyeball the center when I shaped it:D:thumbsup:. I superglue them together and shaped them both at once, that's why it's only on one. These blades will be close sisters when finished, in shape anyways.

    Seriously technical question; if you screw-up and accidentally slip in a lisp when building an eth guard, do you still get the thaply thister? Enquiring minds need to know..
