My intent was to make both the handle and the guard, but in terms of casting, the open guard just wouldn't work, so I instead decided to make the handle for casting and the guard could be 3D printed and then added on after. When I had an idea for a guard I liked, I worked out an idea that looked cool and viable ergonomically. This idea was what I went into clay shaping with. However, this handle design acted more as an inspiration as I found a completely different idea.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
