    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
    [​IMG]

    Hogging off most the excess
    [​IMG]

    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.

    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".

    Almost done....

    I cut the dagger stand out of red oak, shaped it, and cut the cavity and then a recess.
    [​IMG]

    Rock patterned the opening to the cavity
    [​IMG]

    Close up of the face again :chuck:
    [​IMG]

    I burned the oak, and glued a thin sheet of G10 to the recess cavity under the stand.
    And here we are. These are not the final pics.
