The making of Iron guard and seize fitting on Seax blade

Here I have chosen a piece of wrought iron for the guard material. I also have imprinted the iron in preparation for the drilling of pilot holes for the drifting in the next step.
This drilled iron is ready for slotting to size of the tang 1" from the ricasso. With a little filing, I will fit it closer prior to the seize fit.
