Don't know what else I can add, awesome knife, but I wouldn't expect any less form you. I like the blued fittings. I haven't attempted bluing yet. What was the guard material? I'm currently just using A36 and was planning to try cold bluing.

Hi Eddie,
the guard and frame are from 1018 cold rolled steel. It's kinda hard to find here but I found quite a lot of it on ebay. I,ve used A36 many times with no trouble whatsoever. It is possibly a little harder to get a good polish for bluing compared to 1018 but seems to hot blue exactly the same. Cold glueing takes allot of coats to cover either steels. Oxpho Blue is best IMO. It's available from Brownells.
