    beautiful work! I have to say that making the slot in the guard like that is really tricky

    Is the guard slipped over the blade for a press type fit?

    Thank you for giving us this insight into what is undoubtedly one of the most popular custom knives on this forum!

    How did you cut the slot in the guard to such a precise point?

    Same question.

    I have used hardened steel guides befor clamped to the guard to control the slot size and shape but I'm wondering how you do it.

    Thanks for showing this WIP! That rhombic grind and guard look tricky to get right. Nice work!
