Fake leather handle

I folded a strip of fake leather and super glued the end on to the top of the handle then wrapped it round and super glued it in place.
There should be less leather and more pommel but I made a mistake and it's too late to change it :(

Hand guard in place

I glued the hand guard in with Araldite. The gap is for the blade to slot into.

Handle (in progress)

Wood glued the pieces together and rounded the edges of the bare MDF on a disk sander.
