Army Saber Hand Guard Shapes
Below is a profile photo of the WKC hand guard with two areas noted. Under the photo, we discuss each issue. Below our discussion, we show the image of WKC's hand guard (without the red) and two other manufacturers from different countries. All images are completely unretouched.
- The shape of WKC's guard is more oval and less "boxy" than both of the other two countries' guards. We again subjectively consider WKC's design to be more elegant.
- The item circled is the nut that connects the blade to the guard. WKC uses a perfectly oval nut, which we find to be more elegant than the nuts from the other two countries shown. Both sabers from the other countries have nuts that have parallel sides and more abrupt corners.
