the hilt has cast-on silver alloy (melt ~450f), it is a bit harder to cast than pewter (melt~400) and has a brighter finish and is a little harder. But you have to be very careful which woods you use as it will scorch certain ones.

 

I'm making a video of the process which, Lord willing, I will be posting soon... if I can find the time to edit it ;)
