    Had to do something to protect the Ed Brice Kamisori. His site has a picture of a beautiful Macassar Ebony guard, so why not emulate the look.

    I had what I believe to be Cocobolo with a nice pattern, and then turned to camel bone for the spacer.

    The width of the bone gave me a good landing point for the blade. Then I figured a circle rest would work for the rear.

    Dremel cutting wheel and sanding drum provided the shaping of the guard and spacer. I put a rough cut “circle” of bone on my 5/16 drill bit and then spun a sanding drum against it... does a decent job making the circle. :)
    Used my DMT325 to sand the curve and flatten the top. Then placed 800 sandpaper on the DMT to work the face. Took it from 800-1000-1500.

    Pinned it up with stacked NiAg washers and rod. Only went with Renaissance Wax for protection.
    It’s boxy but I am good with that for now.

    Here is a shot of the circle rest in the rear.

    Sits pretty nicely.

    And plenty of room so as not to nick the blade.
