    A little more progress, but not a lot of time left....

    I take a block of 6160-T6 alumium 1" thick and draw out the design of the guard

    Hogging off most the excess

    No pics taken but the tang slot was drilled and filed, and then a test fit
    [​IMG]

    A little more fine tuning with the small wheel attachment and a dremel flap disk
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Drilling through the blood wood scales for the tang hole
    [​IMG]

    A quick shot of the design I have in mind
    [​IMG]

    The bloodwood, G10, and thin aluminum liner all epoxied together.

    I agree, it's going to look pretty badass.

    A little more progress with the handle:

    At this time the handle has been hand sanded to 400 grit and it's soaking in boiled linseed oil. First of many coats. And the guard needs to be "aged".
