    Slotted guard question

    Thanks guys! I figured that I'd probably need a pin just to make sure.

    Slotted guard question

    Hey all! I've got a quick question here. I'm making a hunting/small bowie type knife with a full tang. The customer wants a guard on it, so I've decided to go with a slotted guard that slides on with one end open. I've heard of people fastening them with pins, jb weld, or solder. My question is do you think that jb weld will be enough to hold the guard on? Or should I put pins in it so that it has a mechanical bond as well... Thanks!

    A Southern Mountain squirrel rifle build-along...

    This is an awesome thread! I played around with gun building a few years ago, but never completed anything. Can't wait to see more from both of you guys!
