Hello all I just purchased this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...EaP7VM%3D&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWNX:IT# I wanted to know what you think of a Stainless guard vs a brass guard I plan to go with a patterned Micarta, canvass or linen and bead blast the guard and Handle when done. This will be my carry knife( operations) if it proves worthy. Any issues fitting and silver soldering stainless guards to damascus? or should I look for brass or titanium??
