Sons Of Italy Nickel Silver Shield Button Swinguard

Hello Gentlemen. This one took me a while, but I finally finished my most ambitious project yet. This SOI Swinguard has custom handmade 1/4" thick slanted Nickel Silver Bolsters, handmade 1/8" thick Nickel Silver Hellraiser Guards, a flush mounted Nickel Silver Shield Button and creamy dark and light brown Buffalo Horn Scales. I topped it off with a little filework on the spine as well.

I got the scales a long time ago and really wanted to make sure I didn't mess them up so I built about 4 or 5 knives until I felt I had enough practice to take this on. The pictures aren't the best, but the scales have some really neat translucent areas along with the creamy white streaks. Just super cool.

Overall, the knife came out pretty good if a little on the thick side. When you start out with 5" scales and slant the bolsters, it ends up taking about all your length and doesn't leave any room for error. Because of how I went about it, I couldn't reposition the button after making the hole and, trying to keep it a flush button, I had to leave the scales pretty thick. Still pretty nice though and feels good in the hand.

I hope you like it.
