Amazing knives! Love them!
Hope i can aske a few questions :-)

What is silver fluted guard? Is it the line that goes down the guard, and then you add silver "coat"?

The final knife you show with the two part wooden handle. Is it held together only by epoxy or maybe also som hidden pins? I just wonder since there is no pin through the tang in the back wood?

The guard itself is Nickel Silver, the "flute" is a groove that is filed in, then finished out with sanding and polishing. The flute has a couple of functions..... it adds visual appeal, and is an indexing point for users.

The two part handles do have pins in them, but are also glued.
