I ran into an unacceptable flaw in the steel.

 

Gotta hate when that happens, but gotta respect you for maintaining standards!

Bummer Gary. I hate when that happens. That's primarily the reason why I do not even fit a guard onto a knife until it is at 400 grit hand sanded.

Here are all of the components.  The blade (second) is H/T'ed & tempered, ready for hand sanding & etch.

First dry fit-up:

As you can see, I opted for a bold pattern in this blade.

I think that works a bit better than the first one.

Nice recovery Gary.

I agree with Alan.  It's better now than before.  Not that it wasn't going to be really good before.

Good job.  I think that the bold pattern of the blade really fits with the D Guard.
