Here is one I finished up today. 1084 blade with stainless fluted fittings and coined brass spacers. For me, the keys to doing one of these are to make sure everything is flat, to use hidden guide pins to keep everything aligned, and to build it takedown style so you can take it apart and put it back together a few dozen times through the process. Mesquite Burl handle.

Very nice Jason, I'm guessing the guard is 4 pieces? 2 stainless bars and 2 brass sheets? Nice job!

Indeed, Kevin. There are also a couple of 1/16 pins hidden in there to keep everything lined up.
